Thanks for looking guys, I can't close her up yet until my electros arrives. I'm really excited how she's going to look in the air. I have a "PORSCHE" paint scheme in mind. I will be adding CF on the LE just in case, I will post my progress whenever I can.

Mayday.

OK. I will not wait for the slow boat from HK, so we have to make sacrifices. The BF109 got all the electros I need I'm afraid I have to chop her up for the sake of science

Mayday that is looking nice!

Too bad about tearing up the 109 though is that Ken's SEMFF design? or SEFF?

I always make sure i make my hardware removable for just that reason. I hate to lose a good airframe when i need the hardware out.

BTW, skinning your Enteprise starting tonight..

Hey SGTalon, I love your star trek fleets(i'm a sucker for cool looking birds). The enterprise skin is a great Idea....Yes thats Ken's SEMFF design, awesome plans and really good fliers, I built a bunch of them.

...as far as this KRONIK project I am still trying to figure things out before I maiden her, but shes almost done hope to see her in the air soon. Thanks for looking.

Mayday.

sick , i can't wait .. hope you catch it on film.

if your wing loading is too high you can put some clear plastic between fuse and verts / fences.
should be sweet the proportions lool good.
this is where if box fuses are lifting bodies you will grab some there. LOL

Thanks Scott, I calculated everything before I decide to build her, I usually able to pin point the CG and wing loading, this bird is done! I know she's going to fly really well. I'm expecting a 5min. flight only unless I build a slightly bigger WS. She's READY TO TAKE OFF!....

I will report back if I decided to maiden her TODAY! here are the pics for now!

Favorite until you recieve a shipment from Michigan

It looks great! The canard really makes it look awesome.

I have had a few planes that didn't require trim on the first flight. The last one was Dz1sfb's SEMFF Combat Sea Fury. Love it when a plane just flies.
