Going for the 8S to start with, easily swapped to 10S JF set up later. Preparation for the paint job is on the way.

8S system to start with.

Preliminary balance check.

Big paint job on the way, starting with the TM logo.

Beach sand strip did not work in my favor today, there's always next time. Had a swim instead.

No go today!
