    If that’s the case I am leaving it alone until it gives me a problem and then it will tackled.

    Played with my PR bush tires as promised. Painted the wheel hubs Krylon fusion flat black.

    Can’t say it looks that much better, but has a nice personal touch to it that resembles Alaskan Bushwheels.

    Here are some photos of the engine before I put the cowl on it. Note the Allen screws with the large metal and rubber washer included! Pretty nice. Little dab of blue locktite, and tightened them up. I did notice a bow in the cowl that was fairly significant, might end up shimming up the nutplate mounting surface.

    Got that right! I'm waiting for some 2" elevator arms for the 1.75" slot, 2 Pulse 2250 Rx batteries, Finish programing, and fire the DLE55RA up, tune, double check the CG and get ready for a flight. Oh boy!!

    Sounds like you have to struggle to get parts shipped up to you. At least you do not have to contend with customs and import tax.

    Getting closer! Tech Aero is in place and secured.

    Wires secured, just need to place my antennas in the right strategic locations and angles. Still waiting for my elevator servo arms to get in.
