Now I am thinking that maybe I won't convert my Citabria to electric and install the ASP 61 instead. There is already a hole in the cowling that would just have to be modified.

Decisions, decisions....
I think I bought mine at about the same time/price from HK. I actually bought 2 as I was planning to put them in a Royal P-38 but the kit is still unbuilt in the box and might stay there for a little longer as I have other project to complete before...

Too many projects, not enough time...

Or wafting up through the stairwell when the missus comes in with the groceries.

Now all you need is to stand on a skateboard while holding that.

Re: Sig Citabria (Build Log)

I am still working on it, almost done, getting there....

One of the last thing I wanted to do is a working landing light. I bought a few cheap led flashlight from dollorama and modified them with a receiver controlled switch from HK.

Re: Sig Citabria (Build Log)

Got a few more things done, I marked the CG location, re-assembled the struts and installed the servos in the wing.

I checked the balance and found that the plane is a bit nose heavy. I will have to move the receiver battery aft of the servos to balance.

Just need to install the fuel tubing and it's going to be ready for the maiden, just in time for the first snow storm here in Manitoba probably...

Re: Sig Citabria (Build Log)

I think this will be the last of the build post for a while as I plan to wait until I maiden the plane before I add any more scale detail to the interior and the maiden won't likely happen before next spring.

The radio is now all programmed and should only need minor adjustment. Unfortunately one of the wingtip light doesn't work anymore and I don't feel like opening everything to figure out why. Maybe later...for now, I'm moving on to my next project.
