Whoa! I just got onto DSL, so for some reason my picture came out huge! I'll only post one until I can figure out how to make them normal size again!

Looking very good Razor. Lots of hrad work went into that one.

Also, I read somehwere in here, the words Webra 120 and Kat 70 in the same post. Must have been some psychopath or something, cause I can't wait to hear how that comes out! Truth is that might make it come out noseheavy. It wants to balance with engines in the 20 ounce range. My two Webras were in the 31 ounce range. It would be fun, however.

I hope you don't run out of energy on this one Bro, it's gonna be great.

Twister, it's going to be finished sooner or later! It would be finished, but life keeps getting in the way! I really need to get it done now considering I found a box on my doorstep on Saturday marked "Accel"! Just something else to do!

Life, what the heck is that? Is that a new profile, cause I don't have one. If it's a new plane, where do i get one? I got no life here, what gives???

Accel? You got the Kat 40, right? or 70? I can't keep up...

I got the 40. I'm having to force myself to leave it in the box until I finish this Mojo! Got a good 4 stroke laying around that you want to let me "borrow" for it?

The mailman just dropped off my MOJO

Paul....you are the man. I ordered this thing at about midnight on tuesday.

I have one problem though...My wife told me that I was not allowed to order anymore planes and she just took inventory of my shop. I don't even know how to get it into the house. Maybee I can tell her I am going to do a online review of the plane and I got it for free. Heck, maybee I will do an online review.

Anyway, thanks again Paul If I enjoy this half as much as I have enjoyed my Burrito, I'll be 100% satisfyed

LOL....I'll figure something out.

I just finished reading the destructions and looks to be every bit as easy as the Burrito.

Razorback.....You know the biggest difference between the MOJO and Burrito? On the MOJO, you can't put the ailerons on backwards. LMAO.....LOLOL

Ooooooooooohhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! The dagger in the heart!!!

You have no idea how close attention I pay now when I'm putting ailerons on now! I might put the wing on upside down or something like that, but by golly those ailerons are going to be on right!

OK, here are some more pictures just to show everyone that I am still working on my Mojo. For anyone that is interested in this plane, IT DOES NOT TAKE THIS LONG TO BUILD THIS PLANE! I just have a hard time finding time to work on it!

After getting everything covered, it's time to start the final assembly. The instructions say that since the top and bottom fuse pieces are connect it is a good idea to have an extra hand. In order to make this easier, I made a stand that would make this step a lot easier. I took a foam ice chest and cut grooves in it just wide enough for the fuse to sit in. I also only cut it deep enough for the wing to sit on the ice chest and hold everything still. Here is a picture of the fuse sitting in the ice chest.

Here is a picture of the wing and the fuse sitting on the stand. This makes it a LOT easier to work on the plane.

Once you have everything lined up, you can move the top of the fuse over just enough to put a line of epoxy down. After you get the glue on the wing, just pick the fuse top up and onto the glue. Make sure that everything is lined up and use masking tape to hold it fuse in place.

After the glue dries, turn the whole thing over and glue the bottom of the fuse down the same way.

Here's something that I just had to share tonight. I ran out of 5 minute epoxy, and since there is no LHS here I did the next best thing. I went to WalMart! I discovered something there that was simply made for Swany's kits! When you glue the tube to the fuse, it's suggested in the instructions that you mix up your epoxy on some wax paper, make a funnel out of it, clip the tip, then squeeze the glue onto the fuse/tube. While this works very well, I usually make a mess, like I did on one side of the Mojo 60. At WalMart I found something called Devcon Flow-Mix 5 minute epoxy. This is the syringe type tube that I'm sure we've all seen, but with a twist. There is an applicator that attaches to the tip that causes the glue to be mixed as it's being squeezed. That way you can apply the epoxy directly to the area to be glued. Here is a picture of the tube.

Now here is a picture of the fuse after the glue has been applied. Notice how nice and neat this looks.
