Same here. I have 3 builds on the go at the moment and a couple in the queue but am running out of time.

Looks just like my garage at the moment! Except I have 8 models on the go!

Hey, reckon I could steal a plank fuse off you? Need something for my windburner wing to get it flying again

Wish I could get more building done, still need to build the speedo repair the reverb, Parkjet and build my box but family commitments, work building is slow. Long weekend coming up so hope to get a lot done.

I am still working on a new speedo wing, since the last one exploded on catapult launch.
This one should withstand that kind of abuse. It is fairly solid built, maybe not quite as strong as Josh's wings, but should be good enough for 200mph.
Has there been a record established for the speedo outlaw yet?
Not sure what weight it will be ending up at, since I have not painted and finished the wing. But I would think it'll end up around 900g-1000g.
I will bring some short TX sticks, so Alex can give me his valued opinion about the handling of it. ( I know you fly mode 2, and I fly mode 1. But that should not be too hard to be changed if you want to).
I glued in tip weight of 70g each side. I also will install the servos from the top to protect the horns on landing.
I also changed the airfoil to a RG14.
Will be interesting to see how she goes.

I have my Zipper finished and ready for a test fly.

So far I have a Zipper, typhoon, destiny, windburner and Bee to take. That has to be at least one day of flying and wreckage. On the bench are a Bat and AFP60 in various states of completion (slow progress).

looking great Knut! 200 would have you miles in front of the speedo pack. I think Anthony has the record at about 150 or so.

Ant has 140 at Johanna with his bagged Speedo (listed in the Aus speed thread). You should remember, we were both there !!
That was the day you got your speed with the Ocelot. Both flights finished similarly
(My plane literally got blown to the bottom of the valley )

Gee that was a while ago, actually my first time DS. Was so busy with myself forgot almost everyone around me.
Have to find out how much Ant's speedo weighs.

Hei, I am not saying I can get those speeds with it, meaning the airframe would be capable of it.
