    Measure out all your extension runs, and call up Radical RC. I used to work there, and I use all the stuff they make extensions with. Made probably 1,000 extensions and battery ends while working there almost 3 years.

    Got some more toys in today... the rest of the servos should be here in the next week or two...


    Still waiting on the BlazingStar mount... if I don't hear anything, I will probably just get the SWB and be done with it...

    left to buy:

    throttle servo
    engine mounting stuff
    headers
    RX batteries
    spinner
    servo arms
    assorted hardware

    Got all the servos in today... I'm just waiting on the servo arms, and I can finish all the electronics.... except I don't have a throttle servo yet... not really a big deal, though...

    I ordered the headers and SWB mounting hardware, since I haven't heard hide nor hair from Gravy about the Blazing star mount...


    Mark is cutting a new cowl ring for me, and as soon as I get that, I will be able to finish the cowl...

    Cowl ring?

    Never mind, the plywood ring at the base of the cowl where it meets the fuse....

    Glad she's coming together!

    I'm actually really starting to get excited about this plane! Maybe it's because of the time and effort put into it... I should have the motor mounted this week... just a few more items left to buy....

    5.5" Spinner
    Vess 32C Stealth
    Spot-On 2" Futaba Arms(black anodized)

    Also need some extensions and maybe some assorted hardware...



    Just about done!

    no, but the headers, motor mount, and standoffs take a week to get shipped here.... also, I work long hours and can barely get any RC stuff done in a week after I get all my other responsibilities done in the evenings...:banghead:

    Take a "Mental health day." Mention "Going Postal" to your co-workers, that should free up your schedule a bit!

    There has got to be a work around... Family emergency? Sick pet? Death in the family? Migraine headache? Feminine problems?

    I'm just giving you a hard time. It will get done when it gets done. I'm just stoked for you to Git 'er in the air!
