I have a very special plane to sacrifice at midnight
For those of you who are night owls, it will be a active late night session....For those of you who are light sleepers, bring earplugs

Again Rich goes above and beyond the call of duty. You should have seen the mileage he got out of his donor plane at SEFF!

Maybe it will rise from the ashes... I mean reconstitute from a million little balls of EPO. Or it might be something completely different.

Never underestimate to wonderous power of hot glue and tyvek tape.

If my game was not all the way in Coweta I would swing by before the game if I didnt have to referee that morning!
What about some replacement refs? They seem to do a great job.

Cause I need time to build!

I got a lot done on the '47 last night; however, I am still tinkering with the geometry on one of the elevator linkages and on the throttle linkage. I did do a dry fit last night and she does look great all together. Paired servos (ailerons, flaps and elevators) are all working in unison with one another and moving in the right direction. Flap settings have been programmed but I have not yet done any flap>elevator mixing yet.

Once I finish fiddling with the linkages, I will get out the throw meter and program d/r and expo before measuring CG.... then time to turn her over.



next off to work on the z2 before Friday rolls in...



I am a bit disheartened though, my dad has been following the progress since last November when I got the airframe, and he will be out of town. I was looking forward to getting him down to the patch...
