Almost done, just need to put the servos in the wings and loctite everything.

There's a random loose part rattling around inside one of the elevator halves. Bad QA. Not crazy about the elevator pushrods, either; they bind a bit in the guides. I would have preferred one mini servo on each side driving each elevator half. The pull-pull cabling on the rudder is nice, though.

Sold off both of my fpv planes in June. Having a spotter was sensible, but the buddy box requirement was a deal breaker.

Sold my last remaining helicopter in July. She flew great, but 12s was too much of a hassle to preflight.

My son was born a couple of weeks ago, so I imagine there will be a little less time for rc and fullscale pursuits for a little while.

Ordered a Hangar 9 RV-8 as a scale flyer. Thinking about picking up a DLG as well. A stretched 500-size heli might also be nice, maybe an Atom 5.5.
