    Wing mount

    I was wanting to get a wing and mount for my jato but i was wondering what one made the wing stick out furthest?

    I think there is only one wing mount for the Jato. That one is made by New Era Models.

    With the wing mount, be prepared to replace it soon if you bash hard. When you take a hard landing, the mount takes all of the force. After enough crashes, it will either snap in half at the mount, or pull the mount right out of the rear gearbox cover, causing even more damage. If you run on the street though, a nice 1/8th scale wing works really well as a wheely bar.

    I guess I bash hard and like to jump if your like me and use the wing it would be a good idea to keep a spare trans case on hand their 5$ I put on 2 in 3weeks. My jato is my living room center piece I only use my wing as display I cut 2 pieces of wooden dowel rod attached with wood screws and painted black I can pull it off run er and put back on for display I hav`nt tried leaving it on yet when I run on the street. I have it so it sticks back 1/4in it looks good to bad they dont make a aluminum trans.
