I'm glad you are happy to see me started....
To make the intake yourself should be possible with patience . It's a long way to the fan. I will try with no duct and use the Stumax with a mouth. The problem is the spar .You don't want a spar on the front of the airflow.
The Lado retract are very robust and well made .
+ Lado sequencer for the doors and retract
I'm using Grumania struts for main and Airpower for the nose . This is solid stuff and I will take off and land on the grass field if is needed.
Tonight I "hysoled "all the front formers and tomorrow setup the steering cables and install the front retract.
Will post more pictures soon.
