It has been a while since I last updated you on the build of this plane. Unfortunately, May has been a very busy month for me and I have not been taking pictures like I should. Needless to say, in my absence, this plane has been completed. In fact, I saw it fly today and it looked gorgeous! It had such a nice sound to it. Is it sad that I’m now complimenting the sounds of planes?? lol
Here it is completed and covered. Isn’t that a beautiful plane? The retracts work perfectly, too. Jay had to do a bit of redesigning to fit them in because the plans originally called for fixed gear. But let’s be honest, some planes just look silly flying about with their gear down.
Here is Jay, hooking up the battery to prepare it for the only flight that it managed to get in today. This was the first time I had seen it fly and I was impressed. There were other guys there who were taken aback by it as well. They recognized the aircraft right away and it really brought back some memories for them. Everybody enjoyed watching it fly!
