3 years later the Big Magpie did fly!
I totally forgot about this blog thing. I just happened back into it a few minutes ago and read my post about my full fuse Magpie. I hope nobody has been waiting exactly 3 years for the outcome
WOW how time flys, but I guess the question is....was the airplane ever completed and did it fly? They answer is yes and yes, but It was only finished this past winter. I guess you could just say, a lot of life occured in the mean time and I sort of stepped away from my favorite past time for awhile.
She flys really, really nice. Very stately in the air. Taxis very nicely too. Here are some photos. 3 years almost to the date. I can't believe it.
