Looks great Ivan! Love the Nieuports, I have several micro ones my smallest though is a 12"WS with Vapor e-gear. They all fly great.

receiver ready

I have completed and tested the receiver.I have make it on flexible pcb.The weight is 0.32g enclose battery connector.It is 3ch but only 2ch used,gas and rudder,the output rudder pin are doubled so i can use low ohm and low weight actuator coil.

Ivan, I have built 10" WS se5's but had trouble with my fingers getting in the way of the build. How do You Guys assemble these small parts without breaking them before they are glued.
Great work.

My fingers are fairly thin and its sometimes a challange even for me you just have to be gentle use tweezers on very small stuff at 47 years old my hands shake now, so a good rest is also important to have. I like working in 1/72 scale 5-6" WS Most important plan assembly ahead so parts drop in place easier without having to fight other parts in the way.
The plane is looking good Ivan

The problem is that eps foam is too flexible and the wing is unstable.So i redesign wings,elevator and rudder in depron so it not flex anymore.News in next days.

I have also to redesign the wheel,too fragile,need a support in fiberglass for axle.
