Progress as at 01 Apr 08
Last weekend quite slow, due working.

Paneled gear/fan/intake sections. Now panelled from B1 to fan rear. Fwd fuse stiff as a board!
Fan mounted properly; B8 cut out.
Wing and canard cut out.
All bulkheads installed on stb side.

To come:
Panel 4 rear sections
Build intake / exhaust cones
Cut out intake/exhaust from bulkheads

Random thoughts:
Intake: 3/4-3mm-3/4? Blue foam plug, slice'n'reglue?
Power upgrade path. 7s and new escs, or new fans?

Pics attached.

Friday 21 Mar:
Glassed and mounted fan rails
Balanced fans (lost spinner screw )
Ran fans up, drew up power/current curves. Expect ~750w per fan on 6s, 1100 on 7
Mounted RHS main gear

Pics attached.

Tomorrow, panel gear/fan section. Cut out fan housing, mount fan properly. Panel intake section.
Think about intake plugs, wings.
