Got a lot of building and revamping done this weekend but today I spent working on a make over for the old Hijacker,changed the setup for the ailerons and went for a 2 servo wing . Also gave the fuse a GP thinners bath and took it back to bare fibreglass and then threw a coat of High build primer on it . The wing has been recovered and looks pretty good . I'll post some photos of the finish product soon. Edit here's a couple of shots where I'm at.

Threw some paint into the airbrush yesterday and the Bearcat is 98%flight ready once more need to get a Rx in the nose again as the original lost its aerial inside the fuse somewhere , not to worry I'll sort it out when I get to it. Now I got to finish a build on the Gryphon and re cover the Hijacker
then some minor servo repairs to my Osprey, replace the T-nut that keeps coming loose in the Carbon bird. Probably repaint the Carbon blade while I'm at it . All this and a bit of 2 months to do it all before the Manilla slope fest
