Sorry guys.
The enlarged images load from my FTP server (my home PC) because it's way cheaper than buying web space from my ISP. When my home PC is off, the pics won't download.

It flies! Takeoff was easy this time with the new motor. The plane is very squirrely, I probably need to tone down the throws a bit.

Not an easy plane to fly, it's just as happy flying on it's...

The new motor is here. Still waiting for the 32A ESC, any day now.

With 42oz. of thrust, my "lack of power" theory won't be an issue.

Well I hollowed out some glue and foam from the rear of the fuse, and added 1.5 oz. to the noze.

The wing is 7 1/2" from LE to TE.

Seems about right. Will...
