Hello Mike,
I just wish I were as experimented as you are !
Please carry on sharing, your detailed site is excellent for people (like me) willing to get into modling works.
Thank you and keep us posted !

Thanks, Guys!

Flaps do look large in that photo, especially with the ailerons hanging down, too, but...

Actually, the control surfaces are a pretty typical ratio. The flaps are 30% chord, and 60 percent of the semi-span, and the ailerons are 25% chord, and 40 percent of the semi-span. (And on my personal model at least, I'll be experimenting with (15% chord) leading edge flaps, too... Working on the leading edge parts now.)

We'll be doing the fuselage molds within a week or two, after a few last-minute finish details, and final work on the parting board that will be used. In the meantime, I've made a canopy, (weighed only two ounces) and am test-fitting the internal structure into the tail parts, etc.. Shouldn't be too long before we have a fully-assembled kit for flight testing.

There is a certain amount of advertisement in any post made by a user who is also a manufacturer, but in this thread the development of the airplane and educational content far outweighs the advertising component.

Further, the kit is not going to be in the $200-$300 class where all the competition exists with high pressure advertising. While the price may not be astronomic, it will most likely by sufficiently stratospheric that only the highly dedicated people will consider, and advertising doesn't seem to matter a lot in that range anyway.

This thread stands, at least until release of the kit.
