Move is done, plane made it here in one piece!

Have the motor for it, A used DA 150, also used KS 90 canisters. The canisters have many bumps and bruises but still in good working order. Finished pinning the motor box, still need the nuts and bolts to bolt it together. A friend is making me a custom tailwheel. Covering on order. It's coming along!

I closed up hinge gap a bit on the rudder, since the plane is being kept for IMAC I kept the throw at 40 degrees per side. If I ever wanted to increase the throw it would be a bit of work but simple to do.

IMAC FANATIC

40% happier than most folks.
Looks great Rick, that rudder is HUGE 40° will be more than enough for IMAC rates. Nice to see you back on that bird. Keep it going, summer is on its way!

New tail wheel assembly! Made for the plane. Got 7 of the 9 servos it needs. Most of the electronics but still waiting for some of the covering!!
