Jan 13. Well, here is the beginning of my latest build. Just a few hours work so far. Its coming along well.

Anyone care to take a guess at what it is, or rather, what it will be when its done? Lets see how smart you guys are!

Jan14. A little more progress today. I got the center section of the wing mostly put together.

So far, the hardest thing about this kit, is finding the pieces in the big pile of sticks!

After spending the last few weeks getting back into the swing of being in the States again, then travelling to Nebraska for Christmas to see family and doin all that good stuff, it was time to build again!

Luckily for me, I bought this 45ish inch span Cedar Hobbies Bipe Stick a few weeks before I came home from Afghanistan. Since I LOVE bipes, it was begging to be built.

I spent about 2 afternoons assembling it. Really simple plane, as most "sticks" are. Its made for a 25 - 40 nitro motor. I went with a Dualsky 4250 6T and a 4S 3700 Flight Power lipo. Of course it has a Castle Creations controller in it and BEC. I could have used HS 81s on the plane to save some weight. But, it was made for standard size servos, and I have tons of them laying around. Figured the extra weight wouldnt hurt this one. So, it has some Spektrum servos that came with my DX-7 radios. They seem to work quite nicely.

The maiden went great, in between rain showers anyway. The little lady did a quick video for me, and I felt out the bipe. Smooth flying plane, even with half a Barbie on the controls My wife and daughter chose the pilot. I simply undressed her, cut her in half, redressed her and put her in. Man, here I am, 34 years old, playin with dolls... Also, those big old RC truck wheels work great! The look pretty cool too IMO.

Enjoy all, more to follow Im sure.
