Thanks Matt! Luckily I think there may be a few tx's I can borrow over the weekend, if I still do not have one by then... I have fingers crossed, as I have really grown to like the feel and switch assignment of the 10c.

I will have my golf cart/night flying wing and Burned Retina. If radio gets back, I will be bringing what I now refer to as my Ghost Ship P-47. I thought it was a fitting name since many of you have heard me talk of it, yet no one has ever seen it in action ROFL

If I make it I probably could do an 8 mile flight if the weather is right. You guys would have to be my navigators though. I have done several 10 mile flights with my Zephyr.

Of course it all depends on wind direction and speed but if conditions are good and everything is working right I'll give it a go. I'm not 100% sure I can make it though. I hope so.

They are calling it E-week here ^

It's the same weekend as my event. So no I cant go.

Yes it is! That's because Matt Gunn is covering it.
Will you have the Zephyr ready by then Brad?

Oh yea!

Got the wings 3m90'd together, both main spars in, and two of the wing spars done before running out of glue.

The fit is tight together and the alignment is spot on (TLAR method). I have had gorilla glue leek through the spar into the motor mount, so I have been baby-sitting that fit with the mount. Tomorrow I will measure twice and epoxy in the motor mount.

The only real decision is whether I want to spackle/sand/paint/film cover; or do I want to just lay a CF tape on it (I kinda like the look)...

Controls will be:
DLv1 (I plan to ship after HAEFFI- will you be bringing FPV to the event?)
Lawmate 1.2 1000mW
Clover leaf on the ship
Either Crosshair or SPW on the ground
