70mm Mirage 2000

I picked up one of these from Morris when he had them sale. Been waiting for parts for my Vampire so decided to play with this.
Started by stripping the wings and cutting holes for some MAP retracts. Did the 3/4 oz glass thing on the wings, installed the mains and decided to use a Storm70 I had handy. Also replaced the wing spars with CF plate.
Anyway here are a few pictures of progress so far.

Thanks guys it should be fun. I gutted the battery compartment and decided to start from scratch. Just picked up a Spring Air 602 for the nose gear. With 1700 watts going in I made a glass intake ring to push the Storm70 back a bit. The Castle 125 will have a scoop over it.

Nice going Pete, The storm fan is a good choice for Mirage, what are you going to do about protecting the ESC?
