model slipways wyeforce tug

ok this is my wyeforce official build thread. got the kit today and it looks really good. whew, lotsa parts. so i ordered the motors and esc and couplers to go with. so its a complete package. spendy bugger. so it will take a few days for me to get started on it as i need to finish my springer first. not much left but paint and hook up electronics there. so onto a pic modeled by my first officer brenden.

Very cool...I will be watching your build. I have been thinking really hard about building a wyeforce for a while myself. By the way, here is a website for you to check out, it has a kit review and a step by step build of the kit. It may help you a little.

I think you might have a little trouble convincing the youngster it is not his. He looks quite happy with it.

Good luck on the build. we look forward to tagging along.

Yeah that's what I thought. It sucks that slipway put in plastic props but here is another option for you. Go and have a look at G.T. Sitek brass props in England, I get my props from him...shipping takes a while because he makes each prop to order so don't get in a hurry. Mr. Sitek is a one man show, but a master none the less. However, they are some killer looking props and are worth the wait.

Anyway just an option you might want to check out ....
