If you don't mind I wanted to ask a couple questions about the RVJET since you are one of the designers.

First I wanted to ask if you were putting torque shims when mounting the motor?  The second question that I have is I noticed that the rectangles on either side of the fuselage look like a piece of plastic was to go over them.  Was this for mounting under a cap?  If so, where could I get those or winglet/fin skids?  Thank you for any information.

I should also say, Thank you.  I think that it is an amazing design that you and your team have come up with.

Thanks for the comment. Especially today when HK started selling their copy.

Yes, initially we had plans for some molded or vacuum formed covers. This has not materialised yet and I'm not sure it ever will.

I'm not sure what you mean with winglet skids?

I am referring to skids for the vertical fins.  I am not sure why I refer to them as winglets.  I have already commented earlier today that they could give the hk plane away and it would not compare to the quality and value that is the RVJET.  I can not believe that for $350 you get all the items one needs, including metal gear servos to put the plane in the air.  The attention to detail, including provided stiffeners for the wing, servo extensions, and four configurations for the gimbal.  You get all the R&D that went into it and a power pack that has been tested to work with the system.  That is an incredible, no fuss, value.  This also is going into my blog today.
