Thanks Steve, I followed your advise and try to make it as small as possibel on the back but with plenty of space for batteries and receivers, I think I will install some small ballast tubes :P.

It was my first foam lost fuse and the results are quiet decent :P maybe next time will be perfect. I can also imagine to make a mold for it but it will take some more time :P and only if more people want them :P

On the down side, the HK guy took one week to pack the new receivers so I do not think they are going to be here for the weekend :P.

The empty weight of my sCHally is 190g :P so she is going to be on the heavy side :P

Don't worry EZ -- my Sally's a portly 270 gm AUW and she flies like a dream. And Johann builds ZAlly's closer to a kg!

Haha, I did trash the nose It's fixed now though.

not yet, the wind won't play the game here at the moment. I'm resorting to powered flying until the wind comes back.

Nowhere to go!
Starting to have a severe case of withdrawal!!

well sCHally is almost ready for maiden, just need to tape the servo covers and finish the programing, I think I might be on CoG with no extra lead.

I made my sCHally a two piece wing so I was tryin to figure out a systme to keep the wings togethere for some SAL in days with no wind :P the tric was simple the alligment pin on the left wing is angled, which means that the wing stays hooked, I did some testin and seems to work

the weather for the maiden could not be wors, wind form the wrong direction and evenworst with rain

I will keep you guys posted

regards

How about a picture or two of the 2-piece wing assembly, EZ, while you're waiting for conditions to improve!
