Im getting too lazy when im only 15
I pretty much have to take out all the servo arms, center the servos, put the servo arms back, Get my retract travel adjusted, put the canopy on, fix my warped elevators, get the flaps working correctly, and do some more taxi tests.
Better get to work

You'll still have beat me, Pvt. Remember, all I had to do was install the ESC and do a little wing reinforcement, and that took me almost 3 months from the time I put it on my bench until now. If I had started from scratch, I'd be getting done around 2013.

Gah, well either way, its going to be a nice day this saturday, My club is having a funfly, and im going to maiden then.

I'm a little worried about the retract servo. When they are out and everything is turned on, i hear almost like a clicking noise from the servo.
Any idea?

Seems like you might not be last after all. Looks like I won't have time to finish mine and maiden until the weekend. Rain in the forecast for the next few days.

So you decided to glue your wings permenantly? I'm still debating that one, but leaning more and more towards that direction ...

No , ive read on a thread that the middle of the wing is underbuilt. So glueing them in will help strengthen them. either that or run CA down the center section and get into the joints.

Well guys, i was going to take her out today, but when i went to the field and taxied her out, the clevis for the retract broke
Besides that, when i went to add glue to the center section, it glued the nylon wing bolts in. I figured that wouldn't be a big deal for now, but i fixed the retracts, and im ready for maiden tommorow morning, i got acouple shots of me with the texan that ill post later.
Night.
