Good to see everyone still interested in this spit.. hey Capt. I haven't been around for some time but was surprised to see you haven't maidened her yet!
She's a beauty though.. so please take your time, but i think you're a great pilot so I wouldn't worry about it!
I just finished up my 95" BF 110 and have been flying her almost every weekend.. all electric of course.. but shockingly.. i now have my FIRST gas plane.
An Aerotech A6M5 Zero.. i think you'll appreciate the work that went into this one Capt! Rivets.. panel lines.. full cockpit kit.. the works. Even the gauges are in Japanese..
I wish I had the patience you did with maidens... it was getting really late and dark (I was trying to get her started) but i just couldn't wait another day so I rolled out and took off! It was dumb.. but a successful maiden.
I'm not 100% convinced on gas (I may convert this one too).
I look forward to your flight.. lots of pics please!
