Thanks a lot folks. Well, a couple more days and the 28 will be ready for Vegas. The reason for my fun test flight getting erratic was due to two servos that failed in flight. One was the flap servo that lost center on approach so stuck down. The second was the aileron servo that some how stripped a gear in flight. Now both where servos that had been used in some other models and bench tested prior to installation. I usually load them with my fingers and cycle several times. Both showed good but I obviously missed something. These have been replaced and tested with true loads.

I replaced the full size servos for the elev/rudd with smaller ones and moved them more forward for a better fit and balance. For the finish I decided to use a mix of paint and decals for the livery. Looks good from five feet so good enough. I just need to change the wheels and connect the lights then cut out the nav light lenses. I also installed the cockpit farm glass and as usual got some goop in the wrong place. Funny how I can build complex parts from my own molds but have issues with glass. This week end is test fly my new Eurofighter version two. Wish me luck.... laugh
