Working on Brio repairs, and setting up an Aspera

I've been doing some 'hanger shuffling' and repair work now that the weather in Wisconsin has officially turned nasty.

I've sold a number of NIB kits I had sitting around which were on the small side wingspan-wise.

This weekend I fixed up the Brio. Looks like it will fly again in spring. It turns out that repairing the wing was really pretty easy. Since I have only five 2.4Ghz receivers, I might move one of my 72Mhz receivers into the Brio. I ordered another NIB Brio off R/C groups... just in case. ;-)

I also picked up an 3D Hobby Shop Aspera airframe from a guy I met from McFarland. I'm placing the motor from the Sky Cat into this airframe. It needs smaller servos than I used in the Sky Cat, so I'll be using HiTec HS-65's. This one gets a Spektrum 2.4Ghz receiver.

So it looks like I'll have two pattern type planes ready to fly in the spring.
