Very nice I had one many years ago but never finished it before selling it on. Fortunatly I hope I'm about to get another Your looks great look forward to hearing how the maiden goes.

Do you have working rudders? I'd like to see how you've connected up the controls for them if you do, same for the elevator for that matter. On my origianl kit i was thinking of rnning a push rod out of the rear of the center pod directly to the elevator, but never got that far.

Here's the video of the 2nd flight. Really good flying model. Fast and groovy, with no quirks, that I have found. I have to say I am happy.
