Guillows RC Aeronca Champ

Hi !

I have just begun building the Guillow Aeronca Champion kit. It will be flown with RC and have a TinyBriteLights deluxe kit installed.

Motor and ESc are brushless from Hobby King. I'll use a Spektrum AR6100 receiver and 2 4grams servos from Hobby King. I intend to fly it in the gym this winter and it will be 3 channels (throttle, rudder and elevator).

Thanks for reading along and feel free to post comments and ideas.

Let's begin:
- I am building of a 2x4 fiber board so I can pin the wood parts. I'm using needles because they are smaller diameter than my T-pins and I don't want to split the small wood parts.

- This is NO laser cut kit. In fact, the diecutting is not to good and every part so far needed a run of an X-Acto blade. It requires patience and good eyes to free the parts but the design looks good.

- I am gluing parts with Well bond white glue and CA.

- I also trimmed and primed the cowl.
