Its cooling and I need a Weldon fix. Maybe I'll get lucky and get a Santa ana blow and fly local, I'm still here Spencer and I have been busy but keep me in the loop for flight days
Doc, all I got to say is wow!
Why doesn't life just let us fly all the time?

I'll see if he can reload it. I think I have some good laps from last week too. Need to find time to download, edit, and up load...

My K2M is finaly ready to go back in the sky.
Feb / March I had a brain fart on landing and didnt get the nose down enough, so it wend backwards, and into the shear. It dropped about 10m and sank the nose into the side of the mountain, ripping the already damaged tong right off, and the fuz broke through the elevator access hole.

I was just about to move so Jonathan Wels kindly agreed to have a look at it for me. I got it back a couple of months a go as strong as ever, but needed the elevator servo re-fitting, and the cg re doing. Done and done.....

Now coming in at 2.89Kg.

I had to make the "removable for ballast" weight in the front permanant, and added a bit. Not too much as is all a bit further forward now.

All that is required is a new elevator cover and off we go.

Maybe tomorrow......

Offset wing servo mount

Here are 2 pix of how the Kinetic mounts are offset.
All the Generic mounts will be flush mount.

The elevator mount for the K2 will be flush mount.
