Unboxing - What's In The Box?

Woohoo! The plane arrived today!

The USPS did their best to spoil the goodies by putting a gouge in the box, but thanks to the fine packing by Twisted Hobbys and Telink, nothing was even slightly damaged.

Build begins in a day or two.

But in the interim - let's see what's in the box...

Gotta Have Stripes

Due to the Mother's Day activities today, the build begins tomorrow evening.

However, I did sneak in just enough time this evening to mask the bottom side of the wing halves and the horizontal stab/elevator.

A few minutes with some flat black spray paint and we have stripes!

Here's a photo...

Build Started...

Didn't get much time on it tonight but I started the build.

Wing halves prepped, joined and the top and bottom 3mm CF rod spars have been glued in using Welders glue.

The top and bottom fuselage halves have been joined and the rounded top and lower chin pieces are glued on and pinned in place while the Welders glue dries.

Here are some photos...

Its the same carbon tube inside the fuselage. I flew my friend's on Saturday, its nice, similar to the Yak, but less rudder needed in KE.
Try taking the SFG's off the big slick, it flies a lot better in my view.

Progressing...

Wouldn't you know that once my plane arrived that my schedule would change and limit my time to build.

However, I managed to get a small bit of time this evening and the build moves forward.

Here are the latest photos including the hardware pack that I should have shared earlier.

Full "insane" throws are setup but I need to setup the triple rates and expo on all. Maiden voyage in the next day or so - weather and free time permitting...

I'll post pics and video as I can.
