Default Boxxer building........

Having sold the original Boxxer, I had to build a new one, so I started cranking away today...

I don't have the CNC cut parts yet, so I can't get the wings going, but I did manage to get the top half of the fuse built along with the tail feathers. I would like to get the ailerons done tomorrow, then I have to wait for the ribs and fuse pcs to come in before I can continue..

These parts are all pretty much stick built, but each piece took less than 20mins, so there is a little over an hour's worth of work here.....

This one will be powered by an OS .50 with a Macs pipe, and will have standard radio gear just like the first one. I am hoping it will come in at around four and a half pounds (about 4 ozs lighter than the first)

I think I have finally come up with a covering scheme for it, if I can just find the time now.....

Cool Jeremy, you've always got something scheming in that head of yours. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Between mowing the lawn and detailing the family cars, I managed to get the ailerons done today........

I was thinking of putting some carbon fiber gear on this one. Can someone give me the web address of the gear that Jeff W. is selling..... (yes, I already looked, and no I couldn't find it...)
