One of the current p15 comp flyers has one or two I believe----and next year should see the return of a recent team member with Spark fuselages and Dave Snow (USA) built-up wooden wings/tails,I'm told.
Ask on the GBRCAA site?

Also, not the evo but Gary Eunson had one of the originals I think. Be worth getting in touch to see how it was.

Be interesting to hear how it compares to the likes of comp-arf in terms of quality and weight.

hey Chris,

i was at the comp a couple weeks ago and Gary was there, gorgeous plane.

I also asked him on the quality diff with that and a carf extra he had, he said the krill was much better.

I'll head over to GBRCAA site and see if anyone there has one.

cheers

That's good to know, I've had a couple of comp-arf impacts, although the finish was not amazing they flew fantastic. Not heard much about krill but then again I've been away from the F3A scene for quite a while.

What's the setup? Contra?

Hi,
I am very interested in a comparison between the Evo 2 and the Mythos Pro, my current short-list.

Tom,

Never seen your reply buddy, sorry.

We seem to have a lot of spark evo 2's locally now.

The 2 i ordered (1 for me, 1 for friend) are being built and Malcolm also has one coming.

The mythos seems to do well, there are a few of them in the circuit up here.

cheers

Just a small tip---I got mine from a European distributor,and on his advice re the overall weight being likely to be close to the 5Kg, I glued the canalyser to the canopy.
This may not be the best ever idea---it flies really nicely, but only with spectacular amounts of (down) elevator to rudder mixing needed.
And yes, I've done the usuals----moved the C/G back to the point of near-instability, increased the wing incidence--both with little improvement to the K/E pitching.
(Too late), I checked the incidence of the canalyser,and on mine it's at 0.7 degrees positive to the stab/elevator (as is the wing) ,and, although in theory this should lift the tail/push the nose down (the canalyser is behind the C/G),I'm guessing that there is a considerable downwash onto the stab,from the canalyser, causing the unwanted pitching.

Just a guess, but it might be best to pin/bolt the canalyser to the canopy,as a way of providing adjustment if you need to change the incidence.....
