RE: Lancair 360 MK2
Hello, I know this seems a little late but I have had this plane for about 5 years and can't really find any info on it anymore. I think it's probably discontinued. Anyway, I finally got around to finishing this CMP Lancair 360 MK2. I was running a brand new OS 46 AX in it. The maiden did not go to well. After take off the plane was really twitchy and hard to control. I had the CG set on a great planes CG machine at 72mm without fuel. The control throws were only set for 8mm EL and 8MM AIL. Rudder was max throw. I was using a 12x6 prop. The plane didn't seem to fast on the ground but it took off after a long takeoff roll. Once airborne it seemed really hard to control and I eventually lost control and crashed it. Almost like a radio problem. I repaired it overnight and went to fly agin the next day and it was even worse than before. I was just wondering if you recall any tips for this plane and if you may still have it. CG, Throws etc.. Thanks in advance, Rich

RE: CMPro Lancair
I have purchased this plane and so far seems to be going together well. This is my first glow powered plane and I can't wait until it's ready to fly. I have been taking my time with the build and it is coming along nicely. I will be using the new O.S. 46AX for power. I am a little confused on the engine mounting. The instructions call for aligningthe to marks on the mounts with the lines scored on the firewall. If I mount them that way the engine will be way off center. What I have done is mount the engine temporarily to the mounts and line the engine up with the center of the cowl. Can somebody please tell me if this will be ok or give me some ideas to get it correct? I know I will need to cut out some portion of the cowl bottom for the muffler. I just need some advice.
