Corben Baby Ace - nearly done

I though you might enjoy seeing some shots of my almost completed Corben Baby Ace. It is 34" span for IPS power and was scratch-built from EAA drawings. It should tip the scales at 8oz. with a 2S1P Kokam 340 pack.
I do have plans to kit the design when development is completed.

Nice job. I'd never put the time and effort or have the skill to scratch build something as nice as that !

Looks great! The Baby Ace has always been a favorite. I have a 1/3 scale waiting to be built, but this little Ace is just so sweet!

Hey Tram!

I have one in the box. I hope to start a build thread this week. It looks like it is going to be a fun build. I had to get all 5 of those build jobs out of the shop you saw...Place looks empty now!
