Hello friends,

I worked so hard these last days in this project, because I want to make the first flight test, before painting, this weekend!
I was away from this hobby about almos two years.

The rudder and elevator are already linked and in their own place. I made the firewall with plywood, instaleed also two
rare magnets, to hold the canopy, also installed the battery place with velcro. To hold the wing I put two bamboo little rods
to fit in the fuselage.

The weight, including motor, all four servos and 3s 1500mah is 360gr. I want to install retracts ladning gear, I would like to
know if you all could help me which one I can put and where to find it

AXI220826 https://www.modelmotors.cz/product/detail/336/
4 servos
Battery 3S 1500mah
weight (without painting and vaccum formed cockpit): 360gr

I´ll post some pictures, because them will speaks better than I

Here a link showing the ailerons working:

More progress tomorrow

It flies!!!!!

The maiden was last saturday and it flew very nice! Now I am waiting for the retracts from Hobbyking to install in the wing,
than ready to be painted.

I am making the cockpit, I have a vacuumforming machine I´ve made a few years ago and with just one test, it worked! I´ll
make also the pilot with carved foam.

Some pictures to show how it´s now! Hope you enjoy!

Almost ready!

I need only to finish the cowl: reinforce, make the inside details of the engine and paint!

I used AUTO AIR COLOR from Createx to paint, with metallic, a custom automotive paint, hope you enjoy
the result!

Hello Luis,
Your 190 looks like it turned out great and is a real credit to you. If you can spare the time , a short flight video would be nice.
Enjoy flying your 190.
Regards.
Mike.
