Looking Good.

I got home from my business trip and opened up my XXX. Everything looks amazing. Very good quality! The paint is flawless and everything but the tail and canopy dry fit without problems. The tail needs just a tiny amount of sanding where a carbon spare goes to get in the whole, same thing for the canopy latch. There are no instructions, not even basic ones, but this doesn't look too hard to figure out. Was CG posted anywhere?

I'm going to use a BVM EVF in it and the 120mm ring is just barely, and I mean barely too small. The next sized one has about 1-2mm clearance all around.

The struts and retracts look great and appear very well made. The mains have air brakes, but no tank, line, T's, valve or anything. Nothing is included so that's an extra expense. I was hoping that would be included, oh well.

In all I'm impressed and I plan on starting on it this evening.
