Start build

Now that the work on the desing is finished its time to cut some wood.
I got the plans printed and have started on the box framework.

The first trouble i had was cutting nice square and straight 5x5mm stringers cause when i tried to cut them the blade kept tracking the grain of the balsa.
Solution was to cut it in multiple phases bij letting the stripcutter go over a 2.5mm sheet, this was the first cut was only half way and then it was straight.

Also have most of the electrics in , stil waiting on the GWS 9x7 3 blade props.
Does annyone know if there are any other 9x7 3 blade props wich look like the deHaviland variable pitch prop ?

More when my CNC-parts arrive.
