    Now, more importantly, can anyone tell me what I may have forgotten??

    Turns out I forgot a couple of things. First of all, notice I did the cutout and installation of the aileron servo but not the flap servo. No problem, I can fix that. Then there's the nav light and strobe on the wingtip that I did not pre-wire like I was supposed to...

    Good news to the one or two people following this thread: construction has resumed!

    The right wing is pretty close to being done. I had to go back and install the green Nav light in the wingtip and cut out the hatch for the flap servo. I pretty much have that part done but am waiting for some hex-type servo screws.

    The right aileron is complete as well. It was more of a PITA than it should have been. I'll be able to build the left one much better and may even scrap the right one and start over on it. I need to build the outer right flap still but will be able to do it much better with what I learned from building the aileron.

    I'm still barely above novice-level in this type of construction. But, work is resuming!

    Man, I really wish that notifications worked on this site. I don't get any emails or anything letting me know when someone replies, even though I have it turned on!

    I've sheeted the top of the left wing and will be flipping it over to install the servos for the flap and aileron along with the LED light and wiring.

    I'm working along side my 10 year old son, who is building a Guillows Cessna 170 and converting it to RC. Yes, I'm a very proud dad...

    Left outer wing panel is well underway now with the flap and aileron servos installed and the landing and nav light wiring in place. Sheeting has begun...
