After a full-throttle (UM P-51 motor/5043 prop) kiss with a brick wall yesterday...I've glued, taped, filled, shimmed, pressed, and otherwise convinced the airframe back into shape.

I installed my old brick that I fixed, since I broke apart pieces of the other one...straightened out a pushrod...oops...a little extra tape for the v-stab...and the h-stab...oh man...the prop...and shaft...and is that scortching I see around the motor?

In the livingroom...everyone is asleep; Bind...test...works.

So I think it's ready for tomorrow...a newcomer's debut in front of seasoned veterans with a ton of gas and glow engines...planes that dwarf the Champ under a single side of a skinned balsa wing. Weather calls for 3mph winds...about 50f/10c...sunny...with a chance of CHAMP.

It's time for the Champ to show why...it's called...the CHAMP.
