More build .. undecided whether or not to fit the radiator covers (last 4 pics) or to simply glue back the cut outs that I made for the ESC's

Thanks guys, I am very happy by the way it has turned out

Sounds like you had lots of fun getting the plans printed mate

Got them a long time ago Duke and they have been sat in a drawer .. I think they are maybe a tad on the long side but JUST manage to fold up into the nacelle .. at 80 % you wouldn't get them in there .. and they would be MUCH too long

I did buy a pair of these https://hobbyking.com/en_us/servoles...ount-2pcs.html but the legs would have had to be made longer .. not a biggy though ... these are what I used on the Mosquito and they worked good (see pics)

I think these were the ones I used https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-...ance-type.html

There's something quite satisfying about watching those retracts. Wheels come down, wheels go up, wheels come down, wheels go up....

What motors will you be using Lockey?

You know what they say Adam ... "Little things please little minds" only joking mate, yes it a bit like watching my CNC machine .. never ceases to amaze me how that damn thing works .. it more interesting to watch it cutting than watching test cricket

These are the motors I was thinking about using .. not sure how they will go https://hobbyking.com/en_us/d2826-10...ess-motor.html .. probably with 8 x 4.5 props

Thanks Duke .. might be a little while before I can do much more though as I had a cataract op on my right eye on Tuesday and having probs seeing too well at present and I have to have the left eye done in about 3 -4 weeks .. so looks like I will be a little slow building for the time being ..

I have bought a set of the cheap glasses for reading (and PC) and these seem to be working for close up work for now .. once both my eyes are done and settled down, I will be able to have my eyes tested and some proper glasses made again .. I have worn glasses full time now for over 40 years

By the way .. here is your single engine version .. maybe not quite as sexy looking as the twin though eh
