Working 12 hour shifts for the next week so not much going to happen on the Hi-Max. I did get a few minutes to finish fitting one of the supports. Just need the correct bolts to arrive.

LOL, that would be awesome, but he'd never be able to hit the runway.

Re: 50% Hi-Max Ultralight Build

As a huge Star Wars fan this is almost to good to pass up. Unfortunately I would probably end up in a video like this.

Re: 50% Hi-Max Ultralight Build

Got an hour or so tonight so I forged ahead on the top of the cabin. I have decided to cover it in a mixture of balsa and light ply. I was planning on all ply but it's to tight a curve on the front.

So i need to trim up some sheets and glue them together.

Also need to cut and glue a piece of wood on top of the carry through channels.

Finished the last of the supports, got them labeled and removed until later.

Re: 50% Hi-Max Ultralight Build

Working on the landing gear.

The instructions suggested setting it up and getting it all plumb and straight on the work bench before attaching it to the plane.
