finished it this morning, test flew it at dave's beach, perfect maiden, balanced out just right, gave it the full flight test, inverted, rolls, loops, speed, and some seagull chasing, I think the owner will be quite happy with it.

Nice looking wing there!!! I saw Justin's smiley-face KATO flying around at the floater fun-fly, did pretty good considering it was 7-8mph!

What I'm curious about is what is the AUW and how do you turn it on-off??

that's what I thought, Thanks. I guess I'm getting old and my memory get's worse every day, I think I need another beer,
not sure on the AUW, haven't tested it yet, I estimate going off of my plane at 24 oz, around 28-32 oz maybe, I know justin's plane was built with light gear and came in at 19 oz, all the planes I've built for others came in at 20 oz

Mr Robert bought 2 kits today, so well be seeing his soon and I got another order for an ARF, I'll have to come up with a good covering scheme, I think I'll do the flames again but a different color

Kevin,

Your memory is the 2nd thing to go and you forgot what the 1st thing was

We can put that new wing on a the scale before it starts getting dirty
