Well it took longer then the instructions said it should but it is finally finished .

Have not checked CG or weighed it yet and I
Still want to put it on the watt meter before I take it to the field for maiden, but I plan on taking the plane to our club meeting Friday evening for show-n-tell here are the pictures I took of the finished product!!

Well show and tell went great, but from the demonstration of control surfaces and motor run up. I have decided to forgo the wattmeter test on this airframe lets just say it feels like it has plenty of pull !!

Do not Want to subject the airframe to any unwarranted stress test to see what the motor puts out I will just fly it . lets just say at barely 1/2 throttle the aircraft wanted to fly out of my hand. while be held by the back spine of the fuse .

C.G is right in the correct range exact to be determined after a few flights . Still no scale

This months club meeting was a week late due to the holiday being on the first Friday on the month . So we ended up pushing it back a week to the 8th well, I have been very fortunate in the raffle prize winnings recently, This month I was lucky enough to win this new UMX Pitts S-1S . Which my wife has affectionately named " Peppermint" . I took a few pictures of it and thought I would post them .

now if my raffle luck could carry over to the powerball I would be all set

well I'm no builder , so bear with me and make suggestions if you see me going in the wrong direction, but I will try to keep updating this build as I go . I won this ARF in a club raffle contest back in Sept and figured in need to start building as well as flying so here goes nothing ... wish me luck here are todays pictures I opened the kit looked over the pieces read thru the instructions . had to shrink the covering on the fuse it was terribly wrinkled . marked the wing centerline . then gathered all the components I think I might use for the build .....Continue Reading
