Too far along?


So...I started this Sig 29er conversion last spring, and then flying season started, along with other distractions. Bought a geared motor new, but have been waiting to score a deal on an AR6400/AR6410 foamie for the brick and other assorted parts, which happened recently. I don't have any build pictures from the start, but can for sure document the build from here on in. Too far along to enter...yea...nay?

I have a couple FF kits coming in the next few weeks that I want to enter also...a Moth Minor, and the Dumas Hughes H1, so my heart won't be broken if the 29er is deemed too far along...

I have one of those kits somewhere and I would like to see your results with it. I vote yes!

Another Entry


Still waiting for a confirmation regarding the Sig 29er I hope to enter. It's nothing real special, but my first build in over 25 years, and my first xxxx-to-electric ever. In the meantime, the Dumas Hughes Racer kit has arrived and that IS my next submission.

Welcome to the contest yomusj, that Hughs Racer is a sweet project. Thank you for entering it. As for the SIG 29er, I would say that, to be fair to everyone, it is too far along (completely framed up) to enter, unless you happen to have pics of the progression of it.

Thanks,
Mark

Ok Mark, I can live with that. I have an Aerographics Moth Minor coming in the mail that I will probably enter also. Thanks for the welcome!

Looks like a fun build...can't wait to see your end results. You've probably seen the YouTube vids on the full scale plane?

That with the short-coupled tail feathers, could make for an exciting maiden!
