Time to re-open the thread, my "time to build" mindset has kicked back in! So when we last saw our hero... Seriously, with nothing but wings and electronics to do I just burned out and lost "the feeling" and took a break. I was driving around this past Saturday when all of a sudden I thought, I need to build this Electra!

The wings are straight forward, you start by lining the retract bays with CF (BVM gives you a piece for both bays) or as in my case, a piece of poly ply, which I find quick and easy and less fuss to epoxy in with QPoxy versus get out the resin and CF. Mounting the servos is cake, especially if you use the new breed of thin servos with break-off tabs. You can mount these to 3/8" square hardwood and glue to balsa or poly-ply plates and install quickly when ready (also makes for easy removal!).
