    Thanks Brad.. Yes, I think I could bring the plug on tour. It would be helpful to hear the opinions of other jet pilots.

    Re: My First Scratch build

    This part had me a bit nervous and I held off doing it till today after I got home from the beer store I wanted to install the 3/4" wing tube so I can install the wings and fix up the wing roots. Needless to say the tube has to be perfect! Square in all regards. I drilled a 3/4" hole in each side of the fuse wing root and with the CF tubing all knarelled up... I drilled the tube in by hand from both sides, into the fuse which is a solid block of foam. Incredibly!!! the tube went in one side and came directly out the other. Talk about LUCK

    Thanks Rick.

    7' long and 66" ws. Hoping for about 15lbs take off weight. The electric setup I have ordered will produce 20lbs of thrust.

    If you do not have the time to do it right, where do you get the time to do it over?
