Its been a tough few weeks... repairs repairs repairs...
I still have not gotten around to fiberglassing and putting the motor mount on the AMR Ultimate and my gear collapsed on my Diamante, folding under the wings and causing some aesthetic damage to the wing.
Then the micro bipe. With Glenford's help, I was able to get the proper size ez connectors for my piano wire and I started making connections. Of course during the process I broke the outter 3 holes off the only Futaba control horn I have so I am on the innermost hole with my rudder. I am now having trouble re-hinging my ailerons, but once complete we are ready to fly.
Only changes I have made so far were to reduce downward elevator travel to prevent binding. I had to lessen travel to 80%
Next up is the jet... this really is rtf. I have to drop in esc + motor and fan, button her up and she is good to fly.
MX2 still in the box, I ran out of room to build it.
I will post more pics once repairs/maintenence is complete. I wonder if I can finish and maiden these before the PCMA? We will see!
These are some great shots from the Jones Beach Airshow in NYC; I have not been able to find out who the photographer was, but the pictures came through Linda Maugeri from the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, NY.
