The plane has no name, but the wing is a Zone V2 using GT's 2P planform with a 180mm root chord, and the tails are all Edge.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Charles,

DS-09 can be buried in that wing. Just need to get them ahead of the spar.

with the Turkey day holiday upon so quickly and not had time to chime back in on the get together on bowling I think we will pass on it this weekend. Maybe next weekend.

We will post later next week to see if any one wants to join us.

Note to self: Verify battery voltage BEFORE flying.

Yep. It needs a total rebuild. End of the nose broke off and stuck in the dirt. Servo tray came loose, wing opened up on the outboard side. Luckily, I have yet to buy a truely new plane, and even if it were a total loss, the smokin' deal I got on it makes it a bit less painful.

The thing that bothers me the most was that I went against my better judgement and best practices, and hosed my lightest plane.

I may have to enlist the help of some of the more proficient wing fixers to keep it form ending up looking and flying like the other lead sled.

When is Jun coming back into town?

setup a little mod on my Aurora 9 to make the flap stick spring back to the flaps up position. Ignore the rambling of the idiot behind the camera...

the spring is a #71 at Ace Hardware, the screw I added to the post is from my misc parts bin at work (no idea what size it is)

Oh well thought i would share!
