Now with wing tips, hardwood LE strips and tailplane fitted.
Fuselage servo tray and AMT bellcrank now to be fitted before the finpost & rudder is added.
Spooky! Here's my effort:
I'd love to buy the new wing kit when it's available!

Well it flies!!
2 short slope flights today at Crook Peak before I called it a day as the AMT needs a bit more down elevator movement.
Used all available down trim & still needed a bit of down stick to fly level.
2nd flight included a few more circuits & showed that it should be good once the elevator trim is sorted.
Crow braking enabled a couple of half decent landings on the fairly restricted ‘Razor’ LZ.

Hopefully some flying pics from Andy Davey once he has had a chance to see what he got.

Another few flights last week & the model is now pretty well sorted.
Moved the CoG back to 145mm behind the wing root LE to get it flying nicely. (Could probably go back a little more to taste, but nice & stable & will cruise around slowly where it is)
My AMT neutral position is when tailplane incidence is about -2 degrees with respect to the rudder top line.

Pat Teakle had go on the sticks & likes it!
