    Well folks, I’ve flown it about a dozen times now. The take offs and landings have improved significantly. I’m doing some rolls, loops, hammerheads, and some other basic aerobatic maneuvers. I’m loving every minute of it!

    The nose gear that Century Jet made for it has come apart multiple times in different places. Using standard 6/32 threads on the short bolts means that Loctite is not as effective as it would be with tighter metric threads.

    It’s about time to put the wraps on this thread after three years! I’m getting ready to begin a new build. I learned so much from this one and look forward to using the knowledge to make the next airplane much nicer.

    THANK YOU FOR ALL THE HELP ALONG THE WAY!!

    My next project has been decided: 1/4 scale Shrike Commander!

    I'll post a link when I decide where I am going to do the build thread. Either here, FG, or RCG.
