Looks much better. I can see now that you did not worry about having flex in your gear leg wires. Gives you a lot more options for faking the bungee system. I think I would have used CF rods and...

Sorry Nigel, even though its sport/scale I can't let you rest until you get some covers on those gear legs and some bungees underneath. It's too "un-Cubbish" without them. Good luck on the maiden.

I think about Pat's kits myself, when I see them in Flying Models. Maybe when I get a bit more flying experience under my belt. He and his cronies fly from the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta park, a...
