He's now the Dayton club president and regularly kicks my tail when we fly so I really almost had to get a second Oculus to Ohio just to even my odds.

Rudder completed, no more drama, or comedy. Installed servo tray and servos, loaded battery and receiver, all is well. Off to gather a few goodies, and I will finish electric aspect, and then move to covering. Maybe this weekend..... and this will not be a white Oculus. Surprise coming, in a good way.

Teaser pics! I dont love the yellow coat, it is a perfect match for the fuse-while on the roll. When unrolled it is very pale.... whatever. It will look fabulous doing what was designed for.

Looks like I'll be done tomorrow.

No more peeks until sunday.

Merrill, what are you using for a "pin". I've always used piano wire.

Thanks

The piano wire will work just fine if you can't find the pictured wire.

Thanks Clarence... I was just wondering what Merrill was using... It kind of looks like plastic sprue.
