At last.... getting started on the 108.
I've got to say that the kitting is superb. Everything in the photo is just slotted together and waiting for cyano.
More updates as building progresses.

A little more progress and still no glue!
(In truth, I'm waiting for some cyano to arrive!)

Here is a "Hatcam" video of the second flight. JP 8s fan, 2x4500 Red Power Lipo. I try to get rid of the wing fences ASAP to model TG306, thus no paint yet. As well no high speed passes since a main gear door started fluttering at increased speeds, but vertical performance is quite good.
