A little spit...

...and she's ready to go!

I trimmed out the cowl and it went remarkably well. It lined up nicely with the engine. I have some black silicone exhaust connectors coming that I will use to extend the Pitts muffler pipes below the cowl. I also decided to replace the 4V ignition pack and the 7V receiver pack with new ones by Turnigy. I decided to make the ignition pack 7V too. I had to order a screw for the nose cone as I could not find an M5 40mm bolt anywhere locally.


Underside. So shiny it's reflecting everything under the aircraft.


Once the final pieces are installed I will retune the engine with the cowl in place, then man up and fly her!

  2. Honestly, the luck I've had lately, I'm a bit anxious
