    Great info Jan, thank you. If you have any pics you'd care to share that would be much appreciated. I went ahead and bought the BVM supplementary manual and I must say, best $45 I've spent in a while.

    Rudder is done...had some looseness with the piano wire so I fabíd up a wooden bushing. Much more snug now..had to make a horn as nothing was supplied...I tried to eliminate all slop but Iím still fighting with it a bit. Decided to move on and maybe revisit that later

    Inboard body flaps are done...had to dremel out a slot for the relocated control horn. As per BVMís manual. I ended up reversing the geometry from whatís shown in the video. Was getting some binding when retracted. By switching the throw direction I went from a constant 0.6 amp draw to 0.12 for both servos. All seen on the Jeti telemetry

    Fuel tanks plumbed...used Viton inside and the copper tubes so the clunks can’t get curled backwards inside the tanks. Tank fittings are from Dirk at Pacific RC Jets, nice bling...
    I’m going to leak check them pressurized under water, and then I’ll rinse them out with kerosene

    Slightly off topic but I picked up a new transmitter off RCCanada, slight upgrade going to the DC-24....I like the feel of the tray radio plus it connects me to my European roots...😜
