PT 19 almost done! Pics.

It's taken me a little time due to my busy schedule and trying to decide weather to fly, or build in my down time.
I still have a little bit of work to do on this project but it's getting there. I havent finished covering the tailfeathers yet. The candystriping on the rudder is in process.

And one last one.
The plans are from an Easy Built kit. I pitched the wood and bought my own and scratchbuilt it with some advice from DBlum.
Power is a DX-A motor and all up weight is 7.5 ounces so far.
Nice Wheels Eh? I know they're on order.

I'm sure I'll have a few butterflies before I take her up.
Hows the plans for the Bronco coming along.
Can't wait to see that one!

Looks real good Is that 7.5 oz include battery? which kind are you using. If it includes bat thats a great wt. But from my experience 9-10oz + is very marginal for DXA. Thats why I went to the m100 and why I am getting one of the BMW Tiger sharks. I have a whole bunch of designs based on the DXA but I can never seem to get under 10 oz. AUW I admit I build my planes a little heavy to survive my style of flying

The 7.5 ounces includes a Qualcomm 830 battery pack. I have included everything except the rudder as I haven't yet finished it, but it doesn't seem as though it'll add very much more to the overall weight. Maybe a couple grams at best. So I should come in under my target weight of 8 ounces.
