I'm a little skeptical of the HK gearboxes though. The one I got a while back was a mess. I'll stick with the J3 motor that's been proven in so many cases.
BSD and Homefly have the gears as well as a few other places.
There is plenty of room for more micros.

I'll be getting and RX41d and a MicroAct for the rudder. I doubt it will have the authority I want, but oh well. I have to make a sacrifice.


Oh and this is being built for our fly-in on the 4th of November so I have a while to go.

Our group might be placing an HK order soon so I'll be sure to throw one in the cart.

Is it ok for me to use the Mylar for the hinge, or is that a bad idea? My bigger Isis had all of the hinges on the bottom, but the top would be more aesthetically pleasing. I'm just not sure if the 2um would peel or rip.

Another option would be to put a tape hinge then apply the skin. Ya that's what I'll do. I just need some clear tape now.

The covering arrived today, but there was no slip in my box so I did not know. I'll go and get it tomorrow. I'll have this this covered and assembled (for the most part) this weekend.

I got the shipping labels mixed up, and D Lewis is getting back from vacation so it will hopefully get shipped out soon.

I ordered the receiver, actuator, motor, prop adapter, and gearbox gears.

Rx41d
MicroAct
HK GPS-6 6mm motor
9t pinion
36t Spur

I think that's everything, but the battery.

I received the rx and actuator today along with the prop saver. I should be getting the gearbox housing later today after class. At first I wanted to put connectors on the rx, but I think I will just solder everything, but the act, directly to the board.

The procrastination here is killing me...

The plane is already built. I just need to solder and install everything. I guess I'll get to that on Friday.

I know what you are talking about! I have an extra 300 S made at 80%, that is waiting for months to be finished...

Keep on the good work.
