Here it is ... I don't know where some of the list members find the time to create there works of art? This has taken me about two weeks (12 hours) hope to have it covered and radio installed by next weekend!

Looks great!

I want to build one real bad but dont have the time right now.
Just in case I make the time where did you get the plans?
And where did you get those sweet little wheels?

Look on Micro-Flight for the plans, they are one of the free ones. If you are looking for a kit check out Todd's Models. The wheels are from Northeast Sailplane Products, they have 2 sizes and the colors are red, blue, yellow and orange.

Any chance you can post a picture of how you fastened the carbon landing gear to the fuse? Mine looks like crap but yours looks clean.

Make sure you route the reciever antenna away from the carbon fiber fuselage and as much 90 degrees to it as possible. Severe glitching will occur if you don't.

Looks real good! I see your planning to use the GWS system, should really perform! Can we have the specs on your power system.

I too don't have as much building time as I'd like (job, wife, kids ...). I've had the Tiny kit and all the pieces for three months now and haven't even started yet. Your's looks great. Maybe I'll get to mine after a Mini-IFO, Punkin bipe, etc all started but not completed yet.

Sorry for the delay my ISP is having server problems

I used Spectra fishing line and thin CA glue. Just a few wraps is enough ... I wacked, tugged and pulled and it has not failed yet

I will use Radical RC 7 cell 300mAh NiMH, Castle Creations Pixie 7P and I have had good luck with a Peck Polymers 9" Free Flight prop (the silver ones) on my DX-A motors.

I found a good place to put the antenna is INSIDE the wing. This puts it 90 degrees from the fuse CF tube AND reduces the drag from it getting in the airstream. So far, no glitches!
