She's beautiful.  Those screws in the cylinders actually fit right in.  (litte joke, but true).

Decals done. It took over an hour to cut out the numbers.

Looks great Michael. Looking forward to seeing it fly soon.
What could possibly go wrong?

Another successful maiden, and 3 more flights. Thanks Andy for the photos.

The maiden flight was OK and safe, but it was challenging. The model needed more nose weight (in the end, I added about 8 ounces to the nose!), and I installed one of the electronic gyros to help it fly smoother, and smoother in windy conditions.

Subsequent flights were much better, and it is a joy to fly now!

Michael, this is not the best footage and my flying isn't very smooth yet, but here are some memories of your PT17 flying.

You do need to get another one.
