    Had something much more elaborate in mind..but pressed for time I decided to keep it simple. Decals will be made by Cali. The weather is just now starting to improve. Maybe I'll get the forth flight in soon. grrrrrr

    Re: My First Scratch build

    Thanks guys! Now Im really looking forward to flying it again, now that I will be able to see it! LOL the last flight was mostly in grey primer.. Who Knew that would be hard to see As we all know this has been the crappiest summer in history.. but it looks like our SMAC sod farm might be opening soon. Let us pray.

    Re: My First Scratch build

    Sorry no vid of today's fourth flight, but WOW! Just like that all the problems are solved. I added the reflex (4mm up to the ailerons) as I was instructed to do by an aero engineer(darn I forget his name) and the last flight was just fantastic! No pitching problems, the roll rate was great...Just all of a sudden the plane now flys like its on rails. Even the Horizontal stabs are now level . I suspect the reflex has moved the Center of Lift forward or back but it is no longer feeling like its a 40lb plane when its only 22lbs.lol

    Our field has FINALLY opened up for the season.. only 2 months late but soon the guys with the high quality cameras will be out and I will be able to capture some much needed, better quality videos. The plan is to have a couple more flights and then install the turbine OR fly it as an electric off the pond, and then put the turbine in it.

    Re: My First Scratch build

    Hi guys!

    Been a wild summer for the wife and I... We moved into the forest. Bought a 50 year old cottage that we are renovating. I've finally got around to working on the garage which I am insulating for my new workshop. I just quit a job that I liked in favor of one that I will like even more. It will cut my work commute by 4 hours a day!!

    I hope everyone is well.

    Merry Christmas all and an awesome New Year!!!
