Northrop is not a union shop ....but when (if) we are standing around doing nothing ...and we have our hands in our pockets ...we say "you've got your Northrop gloves on". good to hear C/N finally got in gear on this.

Not only am I waiting to see the bird just fly I'm waiting on flight times with such low wing loading. Flew a 14lbs 120mm jet recently, took 2200mah for around 4 mins of flights a couple of speed passes, didn't have to have power on to keep bird in the air.

I'm speculating this should be similar but even lower wing load than I was flying with....

Please take plenty of videos

Cool...Ahh the o'l 3 view on the wall. After I put panel lines on the 38 it will time to take it down. I have been staring at that 3 view for the last 5 months i could probably put the panel lines on from memory

canopy plug is in final body work stages, and lookin good! then i have to split it into the 3 sections and add runoff's for the molding process, and then put on the frames using alum tape makes for the perfect raised surface to simulate the canopy frames

Huh? Molding process? I thought you were going to pull a canopy from it.

Please elaborate.
