    I think you did send me home with the pattern, but I've lost it in the chaos of the workshop and will probably find it again packing for FliteFest next summer

    I was thinking of doing some sort of quick air diverter thing to reduce the drag for maiden flight, and then once I know she's going to stay in the air for a bit take the time to build up a good one.

    I'm embarrassed to say I cheaped out again here in the desire to get in the air and left it with foam lining rather than balsa. The balsa would be more secure and last longer - and again I hope to come back to that after a couple flights.

The speed controller is a 50 amp in case you cant dig in and see in case you want to run numbers for different props. The motor is BM3720A-KV650 and I believe they are both made by Detrum
    Thanks! I'll dig through the prop pile for that one, or something close

    It must fly!! Maybe not on a weekly basis, but at least once a season, right?

    I still haven't gotten the nose replaced on my blue Caudron, but it's at about number 4 in the work queue now, and creeping up.

    Once a season...yeah, I could go with that.

    I need to get my GP Rifle going. It's mostly fixed up...bought it for $20 and it was in two pieces. Just needs sanding and paint now.

    Good grief that thing looks like a speed demon!

    And a steal at $20 for just needing a little buffing out on the paint job
