    Yikes... a guy would have to be a wizard to figure out your wiring. I am glad you are doing the wiring. I would go insane. LOL

    Wow....we are already up to the taxi tests and soon a maiden? I am so anxious and excited.

    more updates
    finalizing ignition which was defective, but now with a new one should be OK , and there is no one more excited about the taxi test coming up, hope to have plenty of photos and videos,
    As for the maiden, I chose a private airfield because of its length with no obstacles both sides of the approaches. stay tuned

    all loaded up and will assemble for the first time at our annual fun fly, it will be a good assembly rehearsal since this is not assembled as your usual model but exactly like the full size, will some taxi test later after our fun fly, then flight test will be in October, and the reason for October is I decided to enter team so found a local pilot which was rated as the 5th in the world in helicopters, now flying jets , so why October? a few weeks ago while racing his motorcycle, had a bad crash and broke both legs, damaged shoulder and more , so now he is on recovery.
    I'm a decent pilot, but I want the best his name is Colin Bell of Nova Scotia

    I am so sorry I have not kept up to speed. I see lots of progress. You know... I may not be rated top in the world. But I'm a pretty darn good pilot. Want me to maiden it? You know I'd get on the first plane over to get my hands on that beauty. Love it. Keep us posted please.
