Sounds like it's all coming together.
Don't want to harp but we really need quality video of this beast when she goes up again. Think you can manage that? Please?

so i made some progress, got the motors/esc all soldered up. im going to program the esc's tonight, i guess its a pretty complicated process. these have a built in spark arresting system, but i added 3 caps per esc because of the added power line, and the high power 8000 mah packs beeing used. not taking any chances this time! (andy, remember i lost the caps you sent me? they were still in the canopy box at work lol. i found them when i went to put my new canopies on lol)

so, at the end of last week i had applied a bunch of filler and stuff, and installed the canopies, so this week will be mostly body work...aka sanding....applying....sanding lol.

ps...i need to trim about 1/4" off those shafts

Yes to all of the above!!!

Working and Training (possibly shipping off to Army OCS) has me all sorts of tied up.
Hardly ever get out to the field, and when I do I mainly fly helis cuz I just throw them in the back and go!

Are you making AZ E-Fest?

Brent, have her ready to go by this event in Tucson --- March 8th-10th.
There's a full-scale airport nearby and I'm sure I could arrange for some stick time on one day...
