Building a Super Scout with Pulse Jet

Well now I done it.
I spent most of last year getting the AMA to change the pulse jet rules.
Now that the rules have been changed to allow modern pulse jets, I had to get my order in.
I just got off the phone with Hubert.
I have ordered a Super Scout and a 100mm Pulse Jet.
Once the waiting game is done for it to show up here, this will be the build thread.

I hate waiting for new toys to show up.........

It is in the box and just about ready to make the swim across the Atlantic.

The box is 155cm x 115cm x 20cm, that is 61" x 45" x 8"

Did I mention I hate waiting for toys........

WOW!!!

I can't help but to say something, this just has me totally amazed.

Tuesday March 17 at 10:27 am I made an internet purchase from Germany.
The box to ship this was 4 feet x 5 feet x 8 inches, and weighed about 28 lbs.
It was picked up at the sellers house by DHL International Express on Tuesday at 13:41 on 3-17-15.
It was delivered to me today at 14:27 on 3-19-15.

This just blows my mind that a big package can get from Germany to Wisconsin, with customs thrown in, in just 50 hours, 46 minutes.

I mailed a USPS small flat rate box to travel just 90 miles and it took 5 days to get there.

My hat is off to DHL for whatever they are doing, they are doing it right.

In all fairness I must admit that when the tracking first came up online a few minutes after the package pickup. I laughed that it said the expected delivery was by the end of the day on 3-19-15. I figured no way in he11.

I had this delivered to my work so that it would not be sitting in front of my house looking like a big flat screen TV.

Now I am chomping at the bit to get home to open the big box and check out my new toys.

We are ready for an update! Looks great so far. International shipping blows my mind sometimes as well. I bought a plastic aa batery holder for 99 cents and free shipping on ebay. It came shipped direct from china in a week.

I'm still finishing to other builds to make room for this on the bench.

I am also still shopping for some of the other hardware and electronics for it.
