I've never heard that but it may be true we have many restrictions here in the USA since 911? But I'm hoping your wrong I want to make the trip where ever they fly this baby so I can hear those engines up close and see her first hand as well!

I can't imagine that there are restrictions like that...a large % of homebuilt aircraft use wood in their construction (some are all wood). Maybe experimental planes are exempt from any such laws?

I visited one of my local air museums today (Yorkshire Air Museum), I had never been before and surprise of surpises they had a Mosquito, a night fighter version, I did not know until I turned up, quite interesting having a look around. The light was quite low in the hangar and my pictures did not turn out very well. The plane is registered at HJ711 and searching on this will bring up many photos. it is a bit of a made up plane from crashed components, scrapped components and rebuilt components. Some was made new, there was a photo of some woood being soaked in the guys bath who restored it. I doubt it could ever be restored to flying condition, but anyway through I would mention it and link to a photo as an example.

Hi Bruce:

Here are a couple of short videos of my 81" BT DH Mosquito, to provide some inspiration for completing your project. You can look forward to having a very fine flying airplane.

Regards,
Tom

Really Bruce, It will get done. Like my Helldiver, its been put off until I am ready to complete it. I've got two other small projects going right now and will have one more in a week. The work you have done already is a testament that your commitment to this build should never be questioned.

We all step back from time to time, but RC aircraft are one of the best hobbys to pic back up again as it seems we cant put them down for long hehe.

Hey Bruce

I ran across this French on-line forum that has an 81" BT Mosquito build blog. I thought you might be interested in seeing it. If you are like me, you'll have to be content to look at the pictures (I don't speak French... ). Scroll down the page to see some photos of his flap setup.
