Chic,
Thanks, Not sure about battery placement yet, working on installing the onboard glow, as soon as I figure that out I'll decide on battery placement.
More pix later today.

Larry,

Where did you get the back round to the instruments?

Can't wait for the maiden.

Boyd,
I think I understand now... a bit slow.... I had the inst panel laser cut by Chad and the inst are from IFLYTALLIES.

Now for the important stuff.... Houston I think I have a problem...HELP!!!

As you can see from the pix the back of the wing that the dive brake is part of is about 3/32" high... can't figure out what happened and any ideas if I need to be worried about it or how to fix????

Thanks
Larry

Larry, looks like you may be able to screw up the servo end of the air brake control rod to make up for the non-closure. Chic

Okay guys,
Got the back of air back frame sanded to meet fuse, it's still off about 1/64th but I'm done.
Attached is a pix of all the components in position, still need to order another micro servo for the air valve and Vinyl Decals...getting close.
Hoping to run air lines and electric wires in wing this afternoon....

Thanks Boyd,
Now running servo wires in wing and trying to figure out where to put the receiver.
Next is seeing how the servo wires from the wing sit to the fuselage and then mount the dual fuel tanks, engine and throttle servo
Hopefully engine break in right after Turkey day

Thanks guys for sticking with me through this longgg journey.

It looks like when you made the mold for the dive brake you did not contour it correctly.

Boyd,
Thanks. You had sent me the entire build on a CD many moons ago.
I got the air brake to sit better, will post some pix as soon as I finish with the wing servos

Thanks again
