Well, I'm almost finished. I finished covering the ailerons and tail feathers today. I cut out for the aileron servo, but I think I may put 2 servos in the wing so I can experiment with flaps and mixes on my new 9303.

I screwed the fuselage up though. It was bent slightly and in trying to straighten it, I bent it in half. I'll need to get a new one when I get to Macs I guess.

I've also decided to use this plane as my AP plane as it is a little bit sturdier than the original SS, and I can use a better mount. In order to make the mount, I cut a piece of 3/4 X 3/4 pine ( leftover trim ) to size and epoxied it into the wing. I plan on installing a blind nut into this block and screwing a 1/4 x 20 screw into the blind nut up through the wing and mounting the camera on that.

I guess I won't get this maidened before I get to SEFF because I have to work all weekend....However, it WILL be the 1st thing I do when I get there.
