The Wing.... Reworked!
I didn't realize that I hadn't posted anything on the Wing yet, so this will be quite long!

Oh, forgot... lol

I FORGOT to take the pictures when adding the Great Stuff Spray Foam! I applied it before folding the Wing Halves together (OBVIOUSLY), from the Spar to the Leading Edge.
The idea is to have a Wing that I can't CRUSH, and to give more impact resistance!! πŸ˜‰

One thing I wish I would have done is add the flaps. I will next standard I do. Probably either the corsair or the mustang.

Good job with the air scoop buddy, thinking outside the box. Is there any way you could use the air scoop to your advantage to help cool the ESC or something, make it functional?
Yeah actually. I'm thinking about drilling straight through, doing the signature triple vein intake... The rest will be the same......
I look at it, and it "tells" me what to do next!

Thanks for the info on the Nobler! πŸ˜‰

Wow, great work guys. I don't know what happened, seemed to miss 10 days worth of this thread. Great looking planes @Salmonslaya and @PoorManRC ! Sorry @BATTLEAXE about the crash, did you find the cause of the LOS? V2 coming?
By process of elimination I figured it to be attributed to the master Rx in the same compartment as the rest of the electronics. I did have a satellite Rx isolated for insurance but it didn't do me any good. I won't be revisiting this one for awhile. My next warbird will be a Master Series, holding out for the Mustang or the Spitfire

Almost done with the Intake Scoop! Maybe DONE, cause I'm a bit worried about weight (Tubby Cubby still haunts!)

I'll think of it at SOME point!!

It didn't add a TON of weight... but I do worry. 5 more Grams - MORE than the Spray Foam, Paint Sticks and extra Paper I added to the Wing!!!
At least it's in the Nose... 😜

BIGGER PROBLEM, I was planning on reusing the Motor from the Cub....
Well, the vicious Noseplant BENT the Motor!!! 😠😭😒
I've got no money for another C Pack sized Motor...
So it's turning out to be a static model for a while.

Aw that sucks man. I was hoping to see you fly. What about the Scout you built for your son, has that flown yet?

When did you get it? It might still be under warranty... I called up the ft store and got a free replacement about 10 months after I purchased mine.
