    Thanks! Sorry that it has been slow the past day but Christmas stuff is coming first! Hope to get back into full swing Sunday. Once the pipes are mounted things then should move fairly quickly. The plane is setup for Canister type exhaust but not for pipes. But the good thing is there is plenty of room to put the pipes in.

    We cut us out two brackets for the pipes to sit on. We still need to cut more holes down the bottom of the fuse for air. We plan to clean it up a little also so the covering doesnt give us problems in the future from coming loose.

    Here is the switch and fuel dot installation. I first put the back plate of the switch to the fuse then cut the covering so the covering doesnt get messed up when i dremel out the hole. Did the same for the fuel dot.

    Just got the Ignition system installed. Running a Fromeco Battery with a Fromeco Reg and Smart-Fly Ignition kill. I am securing all the wires down with tie strap and velcro for now till I fly the plane to see where the CG is, then I will go back and clean it up a little.

    Here is the rudder hardware with the pull pull cables. I plan on running two 5955 Hitecs for the rudder. Plan on replacing those servos soon when I get the funds!

    Tomorrow the plans are to get the engine and pipes completly installed and to get everything about done I hope! After the pipes and engine there is not much left to be done except for the tiny stuff. Maybe a maiden flight Wednesday if all goes well.

    I am copying my settings from my Aeroworks yak to this plane so I can keep the same Conditions I have had in the past. I will just got to go through and tweak everything. I am shooting to have this plane balance neutral to maybe slightly nose heavy for the IMAC side of things. After I find the right CG I will clean things up inside the plane.

    This is probably one of the best snapping planes I have ever flown!

    Looks awesome too! So a straight Leading Edge plane CAN snap well!

    Beautiful machine- thanks for the great build.
