Here you can see the wing ready for the maiden flight!

As you see I chose not to use the wheel pants during the first flights of the Gilmore.
If the maiden is successful, I may think of you to properly install them...(oh yes, it needs a lot of time and thinking)

PROBLEMS:

The supplied control horns on the elevator halves, didn't work for me.
So,
I decided to go ahead and replace them with traditional big Nylon Control Horns from
Great Planes.

The assembly continues with the installation of a "".
I usually prefer the Hobbico Voltwatch but at 1/3rd of the price I bought
locally a TowerPro.

Man these leds are really bright!
I may post a comparison pic between these two, to see for yourself.

And here is the Dubro fuel tank.

I always throw away the supplied fuel tank and use a more "well-known" one.

I wish it handles the pressure generated by the YS,though ... :P
