Got the paint job for the racer and bloody baron done in the construction site that we now call home.

Also got to maiden them both under crappy conditions, too much wind :(. Now that I have maidened a few birds and have made some what of a major progress on most of the build list I’ll start posting about each bird on it’s dedicated post.

I am also going to continue building more birds today probably in this order; TT wings and power pod to relive and existing fuselage (a plane that belongs to my son), the FT Charlie, My own Paper Airplane design. Starting the TT wing and power pod right now :).

They look good - have fun! I have my kitfox ready to maiden and I started cutting out an edge out of the new maker foam today!

Yesterday I got a bit more building in and manage to tear down this old TT wing and power pod just so I can rebuild it. This is part of a TT that I use to train my son with. On one of our outings we broke the wing in half, I later repaired it but it never flew the same. Thanks to build Ruary it got built sooner than later.

I also managed to start building an FT Charlie as well. Didn’t get to far in the build although I could have easily finished it during my night shift last night if I hadn’t had to stay up after the shift for more construction work in our house and around it.

Alright that’s it I am all in, just finished the Long EZ the last plane on my build list. I don’t know if I’ll push to continue the rest of the planes on my list now simply because I don’t have any more spare electronics considering they are all connected to some plane. I might take out some electronics out of some plane just so I can build one more plane on my list, but we’ll see tomorrow got to sleep this thought through.

Alright so I have been able to fix up a bit of the electronics that were in my trash bag so I'll be pushing to get at least two more planes built before the end of the month and the challenge. Going to go with the FT22 and replacing the broken wing of the Howard DGA-6. Starting with the FT22 now :).

You’ll love the ft-22!

So knocked out a few steps on the FT22 and will probably continue with that tomorrow in between decorations and painting of planes I have to decorate. I am waiting with maidens on almost all my builds because of bad weather and a missing camera man. This is where I am at currently.

Another one down and off the list missing only paint is the DGA-6. I just finished the missing wing, and made the wing chord a bit taller than the original plan. I want to see how this effects the flight characteristics of the model and if I like it more than the other setup. Updates about that will be posted on that dedicated thread when available.
