I was flying in the super top secret testing area today, performance is still highly classified. It's all good, and the trees in the backyard were a bit scary with the sink this morning. I need more time with it and a bigger LZ next time out. It feels like it will launch like a Nike er...Polaris or sum such type thing...
I snapped a few pictures for you Sam.

I was up late last night working on the wing. First time dealing with top drive so it took more time than I expected. I was able to get the right side complete and the left prepped for install tonight should be ready for the contest this weekend. Good luck with your maidens. Of to work!

Combat testing... LOL

Stay away from my models... If they survive the airlines.

One flight down, one to go.

What's the plural of Polaris anyhow?

Got up this morning and started working on finishing the servo install into the wings. As stated before this was my first top drive system and I like the results, I was worried mostly about any slop and getting the proper throw. Turns out the included horns are the perfect and provide plenty movement for flaps. The only the I can improve on is that I should have moved the servo more forward, ended up needing to cut a small hole the the covers to allow the horn to stick out about 1mm. No big deal and still looks great. Like Paul stated before the hard point for the front wing bolt will not allow you to get a good exit at the back of the servo hole but it really was a non issue. I made the servo hole bigger than I really needed but I wanted the extra room which in turn give me enough room to tuck the wire down and out of the way.

Overall it's a easy build, just about anybody could put this plane together.I am also impressed with how stiff the wing is after channeling it for servo wires and pushrods.
