Default RE: Showtime for Pattern flying?

OK, I hit a snag with the header drop being short about 1/4" and got hung up making an aluminum spacer. This is why we save bent landing gear, for just such occasions when materials stock is needed. The engine ended up being rotated about 80 deg to make the header exit line up properly. Unfortunately, the head now pokes through the side, but I can live with that. Had to do a little bit of shimming behind the Hyde mount to eliminate some up and left thrust that snuck in with the new beam mounts. Must have not got the hole alignment just right. Anyway, it looks like it will work out well. Have not done the pipe mounts to the fuselage yet, that should be fairly easy. The plan is to just hang them from O-rings like I usually do, so just a few small hardpoints have to be added with a isolating spacer somewhere along the way.

This might be more trouble than it's worth, but what the heck, we'll see how it flies when the weather clears.
