Here she is, ready for maiden, except I think I'm going with a bigger prop.

Probably continue to add a few cosmetic touches here and there. Not 100% happy with the axle rig I made.

Need to balance . Will use the 90mm from LE chord dimension. Suspect she will not be tail heavy.

Yes, Chellies gear turned out great. I'd highly recommend this set-up for anyone thinking of a Mosa kit or any other plane that could use a gear upgrade. The stock GWS LG is a POS. I'd hand launch only withough Chellie's LG.

A lot more "sweat equity " in this plane then I had thought would be required. Guess I've gotten spoiled on arf's lately- Makes it more painful when they crash after spending so much time getting to know each other.

Final upgrades ?

1). Big @$$ 575 watt 950KV motor w/ 50 amp esc
2). Servos located inside fuse-Thanks bubsteve !
3). 2mm piano wire for the long runs.- Overkill
4). Lipo cabin moved to top deck in front of cockpit
5). swivel hinged lipo cabin hatch added
6) upgraded hinges throughout
7). Nav lights - port , starboard and tail
8) Better tail wheel setup
9). Chellie's LG- a huge plus !

Now to keep my eyes on the weather. Weds and Thurs look bad but Friday, when the 3DHS boys arrive ? Naw

TopSpin, Slow John, you guys are slacking off ! Show us your builds...

All the best !

Looks awesome I Dig it
