when you do your video, can you show:

2. KE spin
3. blender
4. pop top
4. wall
5. parachute into elevator
6. snake if you can
7. 90 degree half roll turn from inverted if you can
8. KE loop

but a plain old upright harrier, as boring as it is, would be appreciated to show upright harrier stability. The wall will demonstrate pitch authority.
I will do it all plus the KE Wall, 45 degree snake, 1 roll in loop, 1 roll in circle, and a few other precision maneuvers.

I do know the prototype did sick pop tops and blenders.

If you are following this build tread, one error so far. Make sure that you install the tail wheel and make the 90 degree bend in the metal shaft to plug into the rudder. After you have done the tail wheel assembly, then install the rudder.

John is right. I plan on not running a steerable tail wheel at this point. If you do want to run one though make sure you install the tail wheel assembly first then the rudder.

Well today I didnt do much due to I had some other things to do tonight with work and had to clean up the house a little!

Got the landing gear mounted. It is a good idea to use locktite of course. For the tail wheel I decided to run no steerable tail wheel so I cut off the part that would have bent back into the rudder.

You will need to drill the holes for the two screws that attach the tail wheel assembly to the airplane. Make sure you put some CA down the holes before screwing down the tail wheel.

I also lined up the motor that I am using to the airframe and the holes do not match with this motor setup. I will need to drill out new holes for this motor. It looks like I need a 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch standoff to space the motor enough to clear the cowl.


More to come tomorrow I hope!

I recently moved and it was the way I transported my gas planes. Had to build four crates. Now I am using two of them as work benches lol.

why? I speculate, but maybe it is easier on rudder servo?

Anyway I bet a lot of people are looking forward to the video, and if it flies as well as we hope, I bet you sell out.

The rod is long enough for it to fit in between the rudder and vertical stab and then bend 90 degrees to be inserted into the rudder to be able to use it as a steerable tail wheel. I had a brain fart and just didnt think about doing this when I glued the rudder in I usually dont run steerable tail wheels on my gas planes. ha ha

Ordered two batteries today from hobby king. Didnt find exactly what I wanted but it will do for now. 4000 mah Zippy packs at 35c 5s. Also ordered a 16x10 electric prop. Servos should be in next week. If my weekend is not too busy I am going to try to finish everything except for installing servos.

Gotta hurry up and get this one done not only to get video but another plane is on its way! Except this one is a little bigger....

Do not forget to cut a hole in the bottom of the plane for cooling.
