Demi Duster Electric - part 5

Whoops. The laser cutting table at the LHS can only handle a piece up to 24" long. Fuselage sides are longer than that. I'm going to have him cut out the wing ribs and some of the smaller parts that I'll need. The fuselage drawings were sent out to National Balsa Wood Co, who can handle it. I really didn't want to try to 'two piece and splice' the fuselage sides.

Did some research and found a motor equivalent to the E-Flite Power 15 from Heads Up RC, at about half the price. I picked up a 40 amp ESC and a 3s, 2200mah, 30C battery from them as well. Hard to beat their prices!

I want to give a "Thank You" to Scott Smith of Scorpion Racing, who helped me out with a CAD issue I was having.

It won't be long before I have a short kit and lots of balsa sticks in front of me, and the actual 'building' process can start. I have to admit, the sense of accomplishment I got from learning CAD (even though I still only have a rudimentary understanding of all the commands and features) and the planning involved in this build has been a lot of fun.
