Lancer, better late than never!

Well I didn’t make the dead line. I wanted to fly this Lancer before year end, but just didn’t get done. I couldn’t decide on a paint scheme (Sig dope) and I didn’t want to fly it “wet” because the final paint wouldn’t stick to an oily surface, so I removed the OS FS and got a 700 watt electric. I thought I could fly it electric and meet the dead line, then go back with “wet” and a final paint scheme.
To get the electric to balance I had to add a 4S Li 5000 ma battery which made up for weight of the OS FS, so the overall wing loading will be very similar with either power plant. Maybe, far into the future, I could use the 7 cc TT diesel as it is also very heavy.
