I had been working long on the S78 and is finally done.

On a parallel project I worked on my tribute to Mr HS this is my version of his T-Killer I called ST-Killer, for two reason S stands for super, my version is bigger and has higher AR and second because in swiss german there is no "ST" letter as it has the high german from germany, where Mr HS comes from :P, I might be the only one who finds this funny thougth :P

Here some pics of the plug for the pod, enough room for all the electronics THis is a very challenging project, where I will build almost every part I calculate some three to four months of work to have it on the air, we will see how it develops

well the vacump pump is finaly ready, it took less than two hours to put together, instead of the recomened PVC tubes I used a fire extingusher as reservoir. This is a venturi pump so it will be "powered" by a air compresor, Which I will get as birthday present in two weeks I will post some videos once the pump is operational, for the moment here are some pics

enjoy building

Well last night I had some free time and manage to finish my S78 wings, normally I build every thing then cover bit this time I felt I should finish the wings no matter I was no started with the other parts, I really like the results (see pics) the 17.5 aspect ration is amazing on sight also the weight 355g is very good, the wings feel strong but stil the flex a bit. I normally fly in relativle slow winds 24Km/h tops, so I thing it wont have any trouble.

On other news, I finally ordered the builders kit for my vacum Pum from Joe woodcraft http://www.veneersupplies.com/produc...Press-Kit.html

I have only good words of this service, the package was Packed and shipped in between 4 hours amazing, I just hope that the quality of the parts is as good, we will see

it was on sale (155 USD) and with the strong Euro it was a good investment, also my wife promise to give me a compresor as birthday present

I will be posting pics of its assambly
