Winter Project - Success!
Still some buttoning up to do with the graphics, paint, wheels and cowl. I just finished applying the last coat on the cowl and I would have had the excellent graphics by Callie done if I hadn't dropped the whole white tail #/stripe on itself right after I pulled off the backing
The plane is a Pat Tritle Cessna 180 short kit done up in Jim Tweto's N91361 featured on Discover Channel's excellent Flying Wild Alaska TV series (I heard they are filming season 3!).
I have full build videos on my YouTube channel along with all the specs/electronics.
I still don't know while I added the Blue Heron clip in the beginning but they have killed a number of fish from our pond I wonder if anyone will get the Cliff Mass reference...
Now onto Pat's DC-6B for a spring build!

The weather is so bad in the Pacific NW in the Spring that this time of year is probably more of a building season than Winter is. I got a lot of flying in over the Winter but lately it has been 2 weeks with out a break in the weather!
Did you figure out you DC-6/DX6i programming issue? Are you doing a build thread for the DC-6?

You got that right, the weather has been annoying. I haven't flown anything other then the quick Cessna 180 flights above since mid-December. I guess it's like this every spring here, strange mixes of rain, wet snow, wind, 35 degrees, more rain, 65 degrees, thunder etc. through April then May and June is either very cloudy or sunny. But like you said it's great season to build!
I have figured out the radio programming and I will start the build thread as soon as I finish the whole wing structure with the motors and retracts. I like starting build threads out strong so it gives people something to look at while I slowly continue
