Slow, Sure progress

Paul and I have been hard at work this weekend. Well as much as possible, it’s a bit more slow-going than either of us wants, but we have been pretty busy (Paul works 3 jobs and is in Grad school).

We've salvaged some aluminum pieces off a Taylor-craft that crashed in the forest in the 70's. We'll use this to reinforce and attach the wings together. We've been cutting, grinding, sanding, and cleaning the aluminum so they’re ready to go. We also managed to successfully glue the arrow shafts to each wing. The tail is mostly together and just needs to be glued / taped. We’ve got some popsicle sticks glued together to use as servo mounts as well.

We've started on the wheels for the landing gear by making coroplast circles.

All in all not bad progress for the last couple of days, hopefully we’ll pick up speed and have a lot more done by the end of the month (if not all of it). Getting the parts from HK will help things along.
