My latest. Check out the 2 tone wingtip! Awesome right??

Its the lt layup and came out at 9.2. Looking at the forecast it looks like Im going to have to add about 4 ounces to it if Im going to get to fly it.

The order included a couple new sets of tails which I replaced on some other ships.... so unless I get out tomorrow or friday (unlikely) I will be remaidening and trimming every single plane on Saturday morning. Yay.

Here is how the wing tip came from ups. they wanted to check it out before they gave it to me and repacked it like the douchebags they are. Oh, also the other panel had a fantasticly large delam accross it. i made a half bag and pulled out the finishing resin and the syringe. Sucked out the air, and put it in the bag for 12 hours and it came out perfect. The wing tip structurally should be good, and believe or not, the airfoil looks pretty darn good, but the aesthetics are not there yet....This is with about 4 coats of paint, and lots of sanding in between. I think another 4 more coats and sanding it should be good. Nice that the plane balances laterally now...

Nate!?! You're going full douche too??? Is it just a Polaris thing? If so, I understand, and more importantly, IT CAN BE CONTAINED! I hate to think I could contract this disease somehow.

Can't wait 'till Saturday in Pari...um...Perris.

Mine is Dayglo Green. I didn't specifically choose that color. It was the only one Bruce had in stock at the time. I have to say, it's looks fantastic in the air!... I'm only a little biased.

Nice looking lineup you have there, Hugh. Are any of those a light layup?

No. I did not want a light layup.

The 2 standard(cg 68mm) layups are 9.3 oz. each and the heavy(cg 65mm) came in at 9.85 oz.

MKS DS65K servos in all the wings.
Jr 285 or MKS DS6100 in the fuses.
Futaba R6203SB receivers.
Lectron 1S 600mah batteries.
