    I had to redo the spinner back plate. This time printed a bit thicker, and the screw tie down also thicker, with cowling on

    I didn't know bridi made a Dalotel kit,
     
  6. Haven't got it in my hands yet. but looking around it seems to have been produced in the 80s. they used Hanno Prettners plans.
    It calls for a .91 engine, seems a bit small to me. it has an 84" span. Thinking an RCGF 21cc or 30cc twin. What is your thought on that?

    Well , 84 inches is not very big so doesn't need a ton of power but I personally like gas engines rather then glow but that's a personal opinion.

    I recently fabricated this current meter (amps) since we are running so much more current then we use to and it helps me to keep a tab on what is what.

    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    Sorry I have not been present lately. Had some computer issues. But thankfully they are now ironed out. Back to intently watch your progress.

    No worries , as you can see, nothing much to show, although I have been working on it, preparing for first flight , in the mean time getting my laser ready for some practice flights and testing the new FrSky 900 Mhz module and receivers, , these are for extreme long distance and better radio connection, but not long distance for me , only LOS (line of sight)
