    That sure has a nice sound to it. Like the plane.

    This week I decided to go flying every night after work. Summer is slipping by quickly up here in AK and I want to soak up as much as possible. I've been working on the Timber wings while waiting on the batteries to charge. No big progress, but it was gratifying to build and fly every day!

    It’s so disappointing that your flying spot has such crummy views :brian-banana:.

    Really enjoyed the video! Thanks for sharing with the less fortunate :LOL_gif:.

    Hahaha... Sometimes RC is an excuse to get out and go to the beach and sometimes going to the beach is an excuse to fly RC! Either way it works out!

    Little bits of progress this week installing the wing servos. Ground the trailing edge of the aluminum spring gear down to take out some of the stiffness and loose some weight. IMG_3916.jpeg IMG_3915.jpeg

    COOL!! Love it when a plan, or a plane, comes together!

    Thanks! Scorpion has been very delayed on replacing inventory recently, I'm glad to finally have all 4.

    Working on the cowling design now. Decided to keep the factory windshield and have a go at 3D printing a new cowl.

    The 3D printer arrived!!! I drew up and printed a vortex generator with the PLA that came with the printer. The part finish is amazing! I didn't clean anything up, this is how it came off the build plate.
