Equipment testing.
Motor turns in the correct direction and servos move.

Tail glued in place.
Fuselage covered, needs a few coats of dope...

Wings are covered with Monokote.
Fuselage and tail are dope and tissue.
The tissue will probably be replaced as it is very flimsy.
Ready for Maiden Flight, as soon as I can find some time and warm weather with calm winds.
#97 Top view
#98 Scoop and motor leads entry.
#99 Battery hatch and servo access.
#200 Flimsily covered tail.

Maiden flight did not go as planned.
One servo was working intermittently.
Changed the servo.
Also noted that the 3-blade prop was not optimal, a new 2-blade one will be fitted.
Lastly, one of the solder connection of the ESC had to be redone.
Next flight should be better.

Sorry to hear about the maiden Guy. Hopefully not much damage. Very itneresting project.
What could possibly go wrong?
