Just got back from 2 good flights. My second flight yesterday I landed in a tree! no major damage. a small amount of epoxy fixed her up! today she flew great. no mishaps, smooth landings I actually drew a crowd today, full of people asking questions while i was flying. I brought the plane in low made it look out of control all of the sudden no one wanted to watch anymore. One lady almost hit the deck thought I was going to hit her! LOL oh it is fun to mess with peoples minds.

Have fun happy flying!

You know at some point, that plane is going to be more epoxy than foam...

Yeah , most of my epoxy is holding plastic pieces to foam, supports and what not. the only thing I have added at this point is my nose gear reinforcement, everything else I glued I removed when i got rid of the plastic firewall.

Do you have any foam left on that plane? It will soon double as a bunker busting bomb it will be so stiff. Smile Keep it up its like following a soap opera.

I agree with ace, keep the bird in the air, can't wait for the next episode!

(In all reality, S.M. you do great at keeping it live!)

Just waiting for the weather here to get nicer to remaiden my bird after fixing the front gear (like everybody else!)
