Happy New Year!

I have started with small woodwork parts on the Greacalis, but other things keep getting in the way! I am taking photos, and will do a "build log" some time...

Thanks, let's hope I can get there, I can not promise. I took a closer look on google maps, and looks that I have to cross two seas. Nevertheless, I guess it's a wonderfull please for vacation, no?

greetings,
Benny

Wow, I last posted in January !! I can't believe it. This has been a long build... (Edit: OK, I just realised this isn't MY build log!)

Any how, celebration time this evening:

a. First bench assembly: everything fits !

b. First firing her up: everything works !

She's fully programmed now (takes 10 - 15 minutes with an Aurora 9). All that remains to do is the cockpit / canopy, polishing, painting, servo covers, decals, detailing!

Maiden soon !

Chris

well i can only say it is lacking the requisite "swissing" to be a good aerobatic model, but you will just have to see how you get on.

Don't start... Oh btw, heard there's a new transmitter that might work well for this project - very flexible programming apparently...
