Thanks, Simon.

A lot of wires run through the wings: rudders, elevator, ailerons, throttles, retracts, and power to the speed-controls and motors (no flaps).

Wing top sheeting (strips) commenced, with most wiring in place.

Cowls for the motors/booms.

They look simple, but construction took about 3 hours.

Thanks, guys.

Model is finished! Now we wait for better flying conditions.

Landing gear wrapped in paper straws and masking tape, and painted white.

I am happy to report that the maiden flight, and three subsequent flights, went very well!

They were nice smooth flights at low and medium speeds, easy take-offs, a few rolls and loops, and gentle landings.
