One more thing…
Like on all new things, you need to make a few small adjustments.
I reinforced the firewall with some glass fiber and epoxy, made a new back plate for the spinner with more screws.
Also the wing supporting wheels were to weak. The printed spoke wheels gave way after the first flight. I changed them with full Acetal or POM material hubs and nylon rods instead of the epoxy once...
The last flight was just before winter time and now with the lock down, it hasn't been out the trailer yet.
I will look into it again soon because there is hope that we will be allowed to go flying again in two weeks time from now.
Fingers crossed that we all did a fine job staying locked inside as much as possible.
I hope you all stay safe too!!! And as someone told us lately: “ We meet again!!!”

Noël

Very nice model as usual Noel. Good to hear from you after such a long time, glad to hear that you are well, the main thing is now, stay safe, even though you may be able to go flying in a couple of weeks, best to be careful.

Hello Noël

Great to hear from you after such a long time. The Milan is truly wonderful work, just like your ASK16 that I remember so well.

Best regards

Thanks to all of you for the nice words! I know that you all are very fine builders, and that is the most important thing.
And yes, I am back and I will post more again.
I do hope that all of you keep safe and stay away from that BUG! :(
All the best and more later,
Noël
