Were Gitten 'er done Curt !!!

I took everything to the field last night and after they were done flying we spent an hour going over the plane and the way to build it.
I was supposed to fly an airplane last night with a buddybox but the guy couldn't get the plane to run right so I didn't get to fly it.
Rob and John gave me lots of info and tips on where to reinforce a few things on the plane and to install the ailerons without putting pins in the hinges.
So after work today it was off to the LHS, which isn't really too local for me(3/4 hour drive one way) to get some balsa, maple and glue, then stop for supper on the way home and then build, build, build.
I put little pieces of maple behind where the servos would screw to to give the screws more meat to bite into and where the wing sits I put 1/4" balsa to give the wing more of a saddle to sit in and then some bathtub caulking on top of that with wax paper then bolt the wing on.
When the caulking is dry I will unbolt the wing and remove the wax paper and the wing will seal against the caulking.
I also got the ailerons and the horizontal stabilizer mounted. The horizontal stab needed to be shimmed on one side so it is level with the wing, but that was no big deal to do.
Lots of fun and balsa is really easy to work with !!

Hey Colin,
I got the propeller today, Thanks a bunch!!!!
