Thats a very cool build log. Did you do anything to give it more dihedral?

Flew it tonight for the first time. Ran a full battery pack down and only one landing...but it was a greaser.

I've got another one of these that I've been working on for one of my co-workers that I need to finish painting tomorrow and the stripes from Callie-Graphics should be here middle of next week along with some stripes my now bare white 182.

Not the best picture, but here it is:

Oh ok, in the one pic of it with the full scale plane behind it looked like it had some extra dihedral. It must be the camera angle.

Fair question. All of our "straight legged" planes have wheel pants with the exception of the I modelled (N64736) The wheel pants that are on it now as pictured were swapped from another plane and the picture was actually done in the middle of that taking place. In other words...it's wearing 'em now, but I had to take the picture then as the plane was at work along with the model I made.

Thank you for the compliments. I can take credit for the color but Callie gets ALL the credit for the stripes. I only took the pictures and she did her thing.

I'm also doing another one of our planes now that's going to be displayed at the company headquarters only I'm using another "N" number on it and the wheel pants are painted slightly different.

Have you seen my Flyzone 182 that I fly and is also wearing stripes from Callie-Graphics?

Did another one, however, this plane will be used for static display only. Same stripes, but different plane and "N" number obviously.
