    Well if it don't run, I know where there is a red headed 55 for dirt cheap. If I had a tiny plane that small, I would already have bought it. But hey, I'll back away cuz I know ya just gots ta have a red head. Even if she's a single lunger.

    Well how about that. Finally someone took some sound advice. I've been wanting a smaller Raven for quite some time.

    Right after I posted this last night, I emailed Tony at Pilot R/C with my concerns of the new Yak canopy. It wasn't three hours and I had a response from Tony regarding the deformed and blemished Yak canopy. As he has done in the past, he requested photos of the problematic canopy. In which I complied. I expect to hear back from him with news of a replacement canopy for the Behemoth Yak (2). I sure would like to get this big girl out and play with her. We had 55 degrees today with no wind and partly cloudy skies. Doah...perfect weather for this monster. Guess I will just have to settle for the newly "canned" Baby Yak-Ster. Oh darn.... LOL

    Made a little fuel tube holder for my tank vent. I put everything together for the first time and it’s pretty tail heavy.... by a couple inches I think. Primitive test, but I haven’t placed a battery in it yet and it’s 11.3lbs wow

    Tail heavy? Ah yeah!! That's when they fly the best. Just point the nose up and mash the gas pedal to the floor. happy-nodding-smiley-face-emoticon.gif

    74” 35cc

    Had the engine from my 71” slick and it was over a pound lighter I think. Need to tell that minion to loose some weight... a little chubby he is...
    Edit: just looked up the edge on extreme flights website. It should be 11.5-12.5 so once a battery is added, it should be on Target I suppose.

    Built a couple of 35 cc planes they all seem to come in between 12 and 13 pounds. Just finished a Sundowner F1 and it came in at 12 pounds 5 oz. and I did my best to keep the weight down. Now it is a heavy plane to start with.

    Old router that gets hot really quick.

    How it was mounted in my table saw wing before. Just a hole in the middle and bolted on.

    New router. Well was new over a year ago and just now getting around to using it.
    460E4C2D-3693-423F-96EA-3886EEE33B1A.jpeg
    Scrap aluminum turned into an insert plate.
    7C091053-B258-412C-9131-DEFA40CD6C5C.jpeg
    Used new router with straight but to cut away where I marked out for the insert plate. Not pictured but I came back with jig saw and cut it out leaving a 1/2” lip all around.

    Insert plate and router installed. This makes big changes easy. Next up I need to build a router lift but that will come later.

    View of it all. Made a new zero clearance insert for the saw as well.

    Big pile of saw dust.

    Saw dust produced from finally using my thickness planer for the first time.

    Got some new nice chisels so I figured they where worthy of being displayed and not just bouncing around in a drawer.
    D3DA9B30-29FC-4053-9A44-BA9AB269D318.jpeg
    Just some scrap pallet wood run through the planer to clean it up.

    All in all yesterday was a productive day in the shop though none of it was RC related.
