Yep, that was one item I forgot to mention. But in my defense, I knew I was going to cover it during the 'electronics' installation portion.
One other important item I left out is the thin carbon fiber strip that goes into the horizontal stab. It is a very important structure support. I was kicking myself for skipping it. Not to worry, I bring it up during the build video. Creating these videos requires a bit of a learning curve but I feel like I'm making progress each time.
Editing the videos (2 cameras, audio, timelapse) takes a lot of time. I ran into problems with the new Magix Movie Studio Platinum 14 so I ended up moving back to Movie Studio v13. One major headache has been the lighting in my workshop. The white balance in the first videos looks awful so I decided to confront this issue and changed several lights in my studio to fix it. In the sample stills below, the new light setup looks MUCH better.
Thanks for hanging in there. Your comments are certainly welcome since the main reason I'm doing this...is for you guys!
