Right - At long last she is sorted and ready to go to Greece for her holidays.
She has been partially re-covered, had a small nose job, new batteries (Sanyo 2A Eneloop Nimh), new joiners (plus spares), got some new tip fins, been partially re-hinged, acquired some servo linkage covers, a few dozen stickers, some new 'Global Dominator' artwork (thanks Jules), and had a fresh wringing out to de-bug her in some of the best coastal air I've enjoyed in ages. Even my lad flew her today - he was too young when she last passed by here.
She is showing signs of age and one of her servos moves slightly slower than the other. Her root ribs are a bit dodgy but she's got life in her yet. Another 6 years at least!

Pics soon.

I was asked today if the Dom was a bit like Triggers Broom?

For those of you that don't know - here is Triggers Broom:
Only Fools and Horses: The Truth Behind Trigger's Broom... (1 min 22 sec)


To my recollection the Dom has only had new joiners, covering, batteries and tip fins.
Far from Triggers Broom really.

But the Aussie flag would have to go upside down on the bottom wouldn't it?

Box all fixed (new screw holes). Labels printed and ready for a trip to the main post office.
She has two sets of joiners, three sets of tip fins and a brand new 2000mAh Sanyo Eneloop 4.8v Nimh.

Are you ready Deltaman?

Did Delta ever get the DOM?

I hope it has not been impounded by Mrs. Merkel as part of Greece's loan guarantee
