Thanks for looking guys, I can't close her up yet until my electros arrives. I'm really excited how she's going to look in the air. I have a "PORSCHE" paint scheme in mind. I will be adding CF on the LE just in case, I will post my progress whenever I can.

Mayday.

OK. I will not wait for the slow boat from HK, so we have to make sacrifices. The BF109 got all the electros I need I'm afraid I have to chop her up for the sake of science

SG Talon... Super Genius.
Mayday that is looking nice!

Too bad about tearing up the 109 though is that Ken's SEMFF design? or SEFF?

I always make sure i make my hardware removable for just that reason. I hate to lose a good airframe when i need the hardware out.

BTW, skinning your Enteprise starting tonight..

Hey SGTalon, I love your star trek fleets(i'm a sucker for cool looking birds). The enterprise skin is a great Idea....Yes thats Ken's SEMFF design, awesome plans and really good fliers, I built a bunch of them.

...as far as this KRONIK project I am still trying to figure things out before I maiden her, but shes almost done hope to see her in the air soon. Thanks for looking.

Mayday.

sick , i can't wait .. hope you catch it on film.

if your wing loading is too high you can put some clear plastic between fuse and verts / fences.
should be sweet the proportions lool good.
this is where if box fuses are lifting bodies you will grab some there. LOL

Thanks Scott, I calculated everything before I decide to build her, I usually able to pin point the CG and wing loading, this bird is done! I know she's going to fly really well. I'm expecting a 5min. flight only unless I build a slightly bigger WS. She's READY TO TAKE OFF!....

I will report back if I decided to maiden her TODAY! here are the pics for now!

Maidened!


WOW! just WOW...I don't know how many times I built a bird where it did'nt need any trim during maiden. This is now my favorite bird! I will upload a better final video, all I had was the IPHONE.

enjoy! Check first post.

mayday

Thank you Sir, I will upload the final video after I painted her. I hope she can handle my flying/piloting characteristic.

mayday.

Favorite until you recieve a shipment from Michigan

It looks great! The canard really makes it look awesome.

I have had a few planes that didn't require trim on the first flight. The last one was Dz1sfb's SEMFF Combat Sea Fury. Love it when a plane just flies.
