Bladder gladder now??

Making progress, check above posts ……………………

Ran an iron along hinges and flexed a dozen times. Also along all the raw edges to melt the fuzzies and create a skin.

So, my hobby took to the back burner while I suffered through over two weeks of a nasty cold. I'm back on track, finished my kit bash and it's been flown.

It's a winner for sure and weighs in at 143 grams/5 ounces for a RTF wing loading of 3.6 ounces per square foot. It flies superfast, it flies super slow, does all the aerobatics a wing like this is capable of and is rock steady with no surprises regardless of where the stick are. Although, this wing requires a tad of reflex, a bit of fiddling with the CG and because of where the motor is mounted a few degrees of down thrust

Power by a Racestar BR1407/3500kv motor spinning a 5X3 prop on 2S 650 lipos, a 10A ESC, 4ch RX and 2X 5.6 digi MG servos.

Best 20 dollar model aircraft ever!!!

Note: pushrods and servo arms at 90 degrees, as is the pushrods and hinge line for no bind operation.
