Work has been slow this last 2 weeks but all the servos are fitted and some of the cockpit has been done.

Thanks Roo for posting your build with so many detailed pictures and explanations. Beautiful work, and definitely a help and inspiration for anyone considering a scratch build.

Thanks Rob and Simon. It has been one step back this week as I have been having problems with the air brakes. So I have ripped them out and rebuilt them and are now working. Hopefully will maiden at the end of march or in April .

Hi Roo,
Thanks for posting this build thread, full of interesting stuff and truly inspirational - even for an ardent balsa basher like me!
Looking forward to seeing it in the air when the fields turn green again.
All the best,
Mark
