I did some more flying today, came home after and noticed the two sitting side by side so I took a pic

The one farthest to us is the one I fly almost daily and sometimes on my lauch breaks (about 50flights on that one), the other is the one currently being built and being moded.

I didnt decorate the one I fly with any decals (its my bash & test bed) but the new one I'm currently building will be decorated.

I have been using the bungee launch system provided in the kit and had no issues, works great.

If you wish for a hands free jetapult system then try:

This has been on my mind too much lately so today I went over the whole fuse with 220.

I like what I see, will have to think of colors.

620 should give you unlimited vertical, would love to know the rpm reading or efflux speed.

Last night I filled in some porosity spots left over from the manufacturing process followed by more sanding today + priming.

Tonight I will fill some more voids and do some more sanding tomorrow followed by another touch of primer.

If all looks good, I will finish by wet sanding with 600 grid and after that we shell start to lay some colors

BTW Guys, the orange film comes off very easy (going to put some red over the white, should look good).

I finished the little jet last night and proceeded today with a maiden.

I had a bad day, first I forgot my wing tube for my pattern ship at home, second I forgot my sunglasses , third I lost the evader on a low high speed fly by with the sun in my face (was a very bright windy day).

The good news is that I still have my original evader to fly and I may pick another one as the red & white looked soooooo good in the air (wish I took some pictures before the loss).

One of those days
