Cool A project for SEFF 2011

Well, I am at it again.
Last year it was my night flyer. I was down to the last minute trying to get it done. Well that did not work out as I had planned. It did not make the trip.
This year I thought I would try something just a tad bit easier. My 1/4 scale cub. It needs a lot of work, but I think I have a better chance to getting it done. So here is where we are. A plane in need of an overhaul and only weeks to get it done.

Default Well,

Well, lets see. Not well, not well at all.

The further I dug into the plane, the more I found wrong with it. The builder made a lot of mistakes putting it together. It is in really bad shape. It has never been flown and for a good reason. An attemp at flying it like it is would end as soon as it broke the ground or very soon after.

It has been put on the back burner for now dew to all of the work that it needs.
