Wet sanded the cowl and added a few silver highlights on wear areas. Will clear coat in a day or two.

Fleshed out the Rx mount this morning. Made it removable with some simple brackets. Got a bit more refinement to do on it.

Got the A123 Batts and 12 channel Rx. Working on mounting the batts way forward to save ballast. All 3 batts weigh just over 1 pound. Made a platform on the inside of the upper fuselage. Will secure them with velcro straps. Also, will make a mounting platform for the 12 channel Rx where I show it in the photos.

Also, got the retracts all installed, plumbed, and working. I made a video I'll try to post here.
We will be raffling off a Randy Mayhew custom GSWAM graphic Yeti Mug at our Tuesday night meeting, as well as some electric motors, and propellers...and who knows what else...hhhmmmm

It was a fun Day. Here are some photos.
This plane has never flown and engine has never been started. Everything is virtually brand new: plane; engine; 6 Futaba Standard High Torque servos plus a throttle servo; multiple servo extensions; 2 switches with charge port for receiver and ignition batteries and 1 optical kill switch controlled by radio; 3 Xoar 19x8 props with a DLE drill guide.

The plane is ready to fly with your receiver and batteries.

I built it a couple of years ago and since then my health has changed and I can no longer handle so large a plane.

To duplicate the plane as is would cost $1100 once the plane is off backorder.
My price -  $800.

Been sick for one solid week. Glad that's over.

Built a mount for the retract servo and air valve. Mounted it forward of the cockpit. It's out of the way and should work fine there.

Success today...thanks to the "Hole in the Ground Gang".....

By the time I arrived the gang has already dug into the muck and found the leak.....repairs to the cracked irrigation pipe "T" section will be made as soon as the muddy waters dry out a bit.....this would have likely escalated into a "Money Hole" had we not gotten to it today.

Also - Trinni has the Bobcat working on the parking lot ...working with the gravel mounds !!

Thanks again fellas!!!
