Kadet Senior is next. I've been slowly working on it between other projects, but it goes full time after the DR1. It mostly just needs radio and covering, plus a few details on the framing.

I've been dragging my feet on a Sig Kobra kit for a long time, and also just got a pulse 15e which will just need arf assembly.

A-6 texan


My winter build is quite interesting. Seagull A-6 Texan. Inherited the airframe from Dean.
Plans for the power system is going to be electric. I think Im going to put a Rimfire 1.20 run off of 6s.
I just cant bring myself to be bothered with a gas or Nitro engine. Im pretty much stuck on electric power systems.
The REAL challenge is going to be the balancing the CG with all the weights I'm going to have to put in that short cowl!!

In that picture Ace the fuse looks short, CG might not be that hard to achieve?

Well it may be short , but its relatively heavy on the back end. Im thinking close to a pound of lead weights plus the motor to offset the tail weight.

What is the correct way to rig a pull-pull rudder? Cross the cables or not? Seems i've had models either way.
