I have rebuilt my first Skeeter-30. Only surviving part was the wing and rudder, all else is new. Maiden tomorrow.

Ok, So now that the bench and workshop/office are back in shape, it was time to return to my very long running scratch build project. Because of my on again off again, I dont have a true "build log" but here are some shots of where it is now.

Basic low wing aerobatic plane, you will see reminders of several other planes here - lots of style queues from some of my favorite planes.

wingspan is 40", length will be about 38-40 (havent quite settled the cowl length yet). Hoping for an AUW around 25 oz. Intended power changes daily, but will most likely be powered by 4s A123 1100 cells. If I dont have the 123's yet I may just power it with 3s2100 Tanic Packs I have laying around. Will be trying witheither a Himax 2025-5300 and 6.3:1 cobri, or a Hyperion X-22-L and 4.5:1 gearbox from a 3-DeLight. Or, a new motor, if none of those is making me happy..
