Super covering scheme. Looks fantastic!

The thinner main wing airfoil has several advantages, including a bit more drive system efficiency at "cruise" speed due to less drag. Should make for some rather aggressive "blenders" too. Can't wait for a "test drive"

Great flying Shaun, and I am happy you finally got a sunny day in Sydney for the photos!

I agree it is a very tidy looking kit. So who is going to get to fly it at SEFF? I just looked at the 10 day weather forecast for SEFF and it is looking good. I can't wait for the videos!

YOU are correct sir!!! I will be at self, and the KMX is on its way. I cannot wait to fly it for sure. I am coming in Wednesday... Hopefully it will be built by the afternoon. Chris will be there, and will be able to start building it before I get there. I can promise you I will have a video posted soon after maidens just like the bandit last year...

I guess I got my information wrong... I have been talking to shaun. The one is being sent and chris was gonna start building it was my info... I am not getting the second one. As far as I know... I am bringing the tail servos I thought. Oh well... we'll get it straightened out... The bandit prototype went to me here in orlando last year. Dan and I assembled and maddened them, then took to seff.

The KMX for SEFF has left the "building". It will be in Georgia on Wednesday and should be a quick build. A lot of prep work has been completed due to the short timeline.

Good Luck Chris and Michael!! Have fun and don't scratch it!!

Thanks Jim... I am excited to fly it. Hopefully we can finish it, and I will be able to fly it a bit wednesday. I would like to have a few flights before the noon demo... I really appreciate the effort, and I know the building you did will be impeccable. YOur building skills are so much better than mine for sure. Chris will probably finish it...

Haha! 3d flightline got the hay bailed and out of the way today. Game time tomorrow so it should be ready for huckin first thing tomorrow. Wind wind go away but we gonna huck anyway.
Theres a fully equiped work shop on premises with anything needed for assembling, fabricating or designing planes. It can be assebled on a build table with foam on top as not not ding or scratch it. Im hopin for a pull on the sticks after noon demos are out of the way. Katanas are a favorite of mine. Chris has been picking at me for weeks telling me i was gonna love it. I guessed every frame i could think of but a katana. Haha.

Did I miss it somewhere in this thread? What's the overall length, spinner tip to rudder trailing edge?

I have slightly over 54" available for the fuse in the back seat of my 2006 Civic, and that'll be the determining factor. With the rudder fully deflected, my Slick 59 just barely fits...
