Kit Bashing a Flite Test "Kraken"

I took the plans for the Flite Test "Kraken" and scratch-built the basic wing and from there modified it into a Northrup N9M-B. Adding 12 inch wingtip extensions, drag rudders and leading edge slots. Working on the motor pods and landing gear and the elevons. I added some light ply to the center bottom joint of the wing for extra strength and extended the spar to tie the wings together. It should be a good flyer as it is a flat bottom wing. Looking at adding a HK flight stabilization unit to it for automatic control of the yaw as this wing really does not have wingtip plates even though the motor pods will help a bit... Mudman1959

Well good news... I just ordered the remaining parts needed to finish this wing. Matched motors and ESC's and a few minor bits and pieces.

Motor mount mock-up

Started working on the motor mount mock up... Got a buddy at work that is going to cut it for me out of lite ply on his cnc machine. Also got the 3 axis stabilization unit installed and working correctly.

I have a Matched pair... Waiting for the 4mm hardened steel shaft to arrive from McMaster&Carr then I'll set the bearings in place.
