    Here is another tip that I do all the time. When you want to trace something off of a print or like in my case today. I wanted to copy the outline of my layout on the canopy. The backing on Ultra coat is transparent. I save all of mine for this purpose. Taped a piece of it over the area to be...

    Got the tape yesterday to lay out the canopy. Did that this evening and split the windshield from the slider.

    Made up the steering arm for the tail wheel. The string is just there for effect so you know how its going to work. Made up the dorsal fin and mounted it and glued in the slides. Started to lay out the lines on the Canopy but ran out of tape. Tried to use the thin yellow stuff but it wont bend...

    It flies really nice. Here is Gaby flying Ken Hubers Ultimate at Joe Nall. This one has a DA85 in it. I think I took this video for Herve.

    Finished the rigging and mounting the wheel pants. That's all the parts I have for it. The Prop and the spinner are not the ones I'm going to use. Just there for effect. :) I'll be getting this finished in the beginning of March so that's it on this for now.

    I talked to Herve today and he said the new Ultimate is about 1.5 lb. lighter then the previous version.

    Got the tail wheel hooked up with my fuel tube springs and the Ruder pull pull hooked up. Also the hardware mounted for the flying wires. Flying wires and wheel pants left.

    Finished mounting the top wing. Directions called for 1.5 negative incidence on the top wing. Had to drill the center bolt mounting holes after setting the incidence and glue in the tabs for the struts.

    I don't know the projected weight. I'm told that it is lighter then the BME Design. I'm missing few pieces and won't be getting them till its time to finish it in the spring. I'll weigh it then. I'm putting smoke on this so it may be a little heavier then without smoke.

    Located and mounted the canopy. Glued the bottom tabs in the lower wings for the struts. Mounted the servos and the linkage in the top wing. [

    Centered the Engine up in the Cowl. Looks pretty good now. Installed the hardware and servos in the bottom wing. The Titanium turn buckle was a little to long so I shortened them on the ball end side. there is lots of thread left inside the ball end. Done this before without any problems.

    I used the paper template to drill the holes. Just a little off. It's not a big deal. I now have a starting point to get it right. Made up the standoff or in this case Shims to have the proper spacing for the spinner... Came out to 1 and 1/8 in. thick. You have to have this first before you can...

    I mounted the Elevators and was surprised by the double Carbon Stab tubes. I thought to myself that this is going to be a pain to install. Not so Stabs slipped on perfectly and seem to provide a real solid mount for the stabs. I've grown fond of bonded washers so I buy them by the hundred. I...
