This was given to me by a close friend for almost pennies on the dollar and since I have a Speed 2M well the build should go fine. Using for the first time Hyperion's for all moving surfaces and sub C 5 cell 6v with a seven lug for the ballast tube. As you know if you have a Nan, a little painting will be in order after the build to bring her to that finished look, few holes light paint the usual. Well her we go! Well it has been some time since I've been able to work on any planes because of the house being under construction, well all done and I've made some progress on her will post some more pic soon.

Well after a long House remodel I'm back were I finished off, the Nan 2.5. I've finished the connectors for the fuse and wing, the tray is glued in and just need one more coat on the tray - correct color to match the wings, should be finished in the next two weeks.

Ok, things are going as planned have finished the tray and the fuse is complete, a few minor pick ups, on to the wings.

The wing are finished, made my own servo trays, all glued in just some minor adjustments, everything with + or - 10 mm mecanically so just fine tuning with the radio.

She is all done, made one mistake in the chose of the battery chose so no room for weight - will replace with new one and she will CG at 86mm to start....Continue Reading

Well, I been wanting to start on this, and I will after the NAN. It should be interesting because I'm aiming to hide everything internally. Here's the first look at her. More details and pictures to follow.

As stated, finished the NAN and after three years I've started on her. Starting with the Tails as they have some interesting challenges on the install. Will open up the tail section and add the additional CF or Kevlar along the seam on both sides.

This was purchased second hand so I'm having to make all the servo trays and glass control horns.

Tails are finished, would put up a quick movie showing the finish and movment but not allowed. Not sure if to start on the fuse or wings, I'll decide that in the next couple of days?...Continue Reading

Well, it has been some time but here they are the first new fuse prototypes and they are in our hands for testing. We've gone with an S Glass schedule with Kevlar in the saddle. So here are some pictures with the original from 28 years ago, along with new. We've also decided to go with it premiered in the mold, so it will be very easy to paint. More to come and we'll be building these to test and will keep all informed.
