Hey Guys, I'm almost done with my new plane Very Happy Very Happy . I have been workin on it here and there for 2 years and its finally almost done.
Its a 35% extra 260, 101" ws and 98" long. Should finnish up around 25 lbs or so, power will be a 3W 85xi ( I had @ field sunday and most of you saw )with a tuned cannister exhaust.
Will tune with a 27-10 prop and then switch to a 28-10. here are some pics, as of now just needs spinner, pilot, and install cannister system wich I'm have some minor fitment problems with but nothin a dremel tool and duct tape can't take care of Shocked
I had multiplex letters for wings but so as to not have Rog jinx me and have the whole 300.00 exhaust fall off I'm using jr lettering instead and see if that will break the " Rog makin my exhaust systems fall off " curse Laughing Shocked

WOW, that thing looks awesome Dave.

I would wrap a pic of Roger around the cannister, that way they could have a hot air dual and he might be less inclined to be trying to loosen screws.

My Mama always said "if you don't use your head you might as well have two a$$holes", of course my dad said I didn't need another one I had plenty already.

I didn't, still using the multiplex but don't tell Rog, I figured he maybe wouldn't make the exhaust fall off if he thought I had a JR Radio Very Happy Very Happy He caught on already and doesn't even like the stickers, and still might put the wammy on my exhaust system Shocked Shocked
