Not much progress but it's something.
I cut out the fuse sides and transfered the marks for the formers on the wrong side of one of the pieces
Next I will sand down the edges then it will be time to watch some more videos.

Do you have a larger engine?
A 46 is going to be alittle on the weak side.

The O.S. .46 will have just enough power to climb slowly out of a hover if you use the right prop 12.25x3.75 is the prop you need for that engine. Try and keep your build as light as possible and it can work out ok. I flew my TT 40 on a thunder tigre .46 and it was actually a lot of fun. Of course the Saito .72 was the best.

I have a os65la but I think it has similar output as the 46? I'm not ready for any fancy tricks yet. I did have Waldo show me how to do a loop with my plane, but I didn't get a chance to try it since the elevator flew right off half way through his loop.

That was Hysterical Ernie said Hey!!! can my plane do a loop I said yes apparently I was wrong

I'm thinking he's going to love his 46AX on there just like David22 does we can always push him into the bigger engine once he gets used to it. Ernie is flying awesome and has come a long way in a very short time I believe this plane will give him the thrill he's looking for

I will not ask again unless I am absolutely positively sure I glued and pinned the hinges in next time.

Eight days into my build.

I started this hobby two years ago and flew ultra micros in the park until I joined a local flying club late this past summer. Met a guy at the field who introduced me to bigger planes. The rest is history.

This is my first build, much less from stock and prints. I've never even put together an ARF. I've barely made repairs to planes beyond soaking foam in hot water so it regains its shape or gluing landing gear back on. Anyone who knows me knows that when I get into hobbies, I go all in. No exceptions this time. I had been looking for a reason to set up a workshop in the otherwise unused basement. When I found this thread, it was the inspiration I needed.

So far, so good. Aside from work, I have no other demands on my time, so I've been spending the evenings downstairs working. I have probably 20 - 25 hours into it. I picked up the engine this afternoon, a Saito .72. Looking forward to that four stroke sound and performance!
