Thought I would post some recent pictures. I still need to add lots of detail, pave pod, emblems, etc...
Life has been crazy so I haven't been able to post.... I spent some time last weekend and did more sanding and painting. I also built and mounted the wing fillets.
I keep experimenting with colors and other adjustments. Too much it seems. I just cant seem to find the right color. Oh well...
Tonight I vacuum formed a canopy over a plug just to see how it looks. It was my first formed canopy so I think its ok for now.
I haven't flown it for over two weeks. Its still fun to cruise around even though she is work in progress. We got some snow so I may be out of luck flying it anytime soon. Still, she floats in nice and lands gentle.
I do need to upgrade to 70mm fans someday. Especially since she is nearly 5ft on the WS. I may just leave the 64's in her and upgrade to 4s. But since HP cant keep batteries in stock I'll hold off for a now. The retracts I want are also MIA....
