Yes the doc reckons I probably wont need to wear glasses for log distance but still need them for close work and reading etc .. but I have worn glasses for so long I sort of feel naked without them AND, I am not sure I want to have to remember to cart a pair of reading glasses around with me all the time .. will have to wait and see I guess

Hopefully the old peepers will heal quickly!

You could always buy some of those fake specs that posers wear in order to appear more intelligent! Or X-ray specs!!!

Thats right jumo, although maybe I should go the whole hog .. I have already done the HG1 and HG3 so maybe the HG2 should be the next one

Not sure about that one Duke

You know that I crashed my ME 262 HG 1 on its maiden flight and never did build it again .. you built the HG 111 and it flew very well .. so I really think I should do the HG 11 .. the ME 262 has always been one of my favourite planes and I never really got to fly it so I think I must do it now .. its really coming along and looking good

This one is about 1300 wing span about 1060 long so should fly real good on 2 x 70 mm EDFs .. might even go the whole hog and fit retracts

Hey Duke, can't decide if I should go std tail or V tail .. which do you think ?

Yes Lockey, just like David said.
Turn on you Tx, put the throttled all the way up.
Plug in the battery. This should put the escs into program mode with 2 beeps. Pull the stick all the way down ... should sound again. Unplug the battery.
Have you disconnected one of the red wires on one of the escs??

Well I hope you didn't CUT the red wire!!?? I slide the pin out of the receiver connector by lifting the black tab and tape it back onto the lead. That way when you crash it into ground you can reuse the ESC.... Lol... No pressure!!.
Just kidding mate

That last photo you posted- Man she's a good gal

I have the TGY 1400kV motor on my pusher glider with 7x4 prop. It'll be interesting to see if the motor can handle 8" prop.
