I was joking with him yesterday before the maiden that I’ve been following this thread for two months! I “have a lot invested in this” so I was staying as late as it took if he was going to do the maiden. Glad it was such a success!

Java, the dry weight of the Turbo is 22.5 lbs, I predicted it was going to weight max 22 lbs, add the 100 oz of fuel and the 40 oz of smoke, 8 lbs and you get a weight of 30.5 lbs on TO. But I will fill up the tanks and will get the true weight with full tanks.

Thank you for sharing about building the Turbinator. It motivates me to build one.

Get it going Pat, it takes a bit of work and time ( not 12 years like me ) like Ziroli mention on the instruction manual, you will be reworded with a nice, good flying airplane.

12 mounts is reasonable ;-)), rather that 12 years, start, you will enjoy it,

Any more fly Carlos?

No flying since the maiden, either too hot or no time but, I just heard from Callie Graphics that the Turbo graphics will be on the way tomorrow.
On my days off I will check and adjust what needs to be done and will start the scheme details, next time it flies it will be all dressed up

Then and now.
