Finally picked her up yesterday. First thing I did was clean it off. I used my covering iron to tighten up the trim as 2 of the pieces were extremely saggy, and when I did so they shrunk up as it looked and felt like monkote, but for some reason the builder decided to use fabric covering for the trim.. anyways the servo install is horrible. One servo is zip tied in! I then removed the steering servo and the nose gear so I can convert it to a tail dragger.

It's been awhile since any activity happened on this thread. I couldn't get the old wing to work out, so i waited for some decent plans to pop up, and it finally happened! Can't wait to have this one flying as it will be a little hot rod with the .46 I'm dropping in it
