New Pilot for my Carden Pro 124

    Picked up a new ride from a friend of mine for the 2018 season. A nice Carden Pro 124. He was running a 200, but I pulled my DA 170, pipes and all the gear outta my old Raven (which has a new owner) for this Carden.

    I retired Capt Jack (he's too big!) and got a G force pilot for this plane. Gotta say, they are excellent pilot busts! Blinged up the instrument panel a bit. He's ready to maiden this bird once the weather breaks.

    Nice to see you back . Looks like a nice plane. Keep us up to date.
    Really like your instrument panel it is good looking on both sides. Does the instrument panel light up.

    No lights! trying to keep weight to a minimum. The back side of the panel weighs 16 grams....balsa, string and bit of plastic doesn't weigh much! 20180207_130937.jpg

    Nice job and the weight you were able to keep it down to is great. Nice to see someone take the time to make things like that it is disappearing from the hobby. At least around the area I live but at JoeNall you can still find it on the main line.
