That's all for tonight. I did start the rudder but the epoxy I had was not fit for mixing.
I'll post more as I go. Hope to get some epoxy Sunday and get some more progress done when I get home from flying.

Looks great! And that engine seems like it was made for it. I look forward to a flight report (and video). :)

Would like a flight report myself. Still looking for a new plane for my evolution 10cc. After dealing with those bastards at value hobby on the last plane the 10cc was in I will never do business with them again. Take lots of plane cleaner they slobber oil bad.

They do? That's disappointing, If I get one I was hoping for a relatively clean experience like my DLE-20 / Velox. :thinking

I've also seen that the small to medium sized 4 stroke gas engines slobber oil as well. A Saito FG-40 powered model that was at my club field left quite the slick on the underside of itself. From what the owner said, these engines use so little fuel that the oil ratio has to go up to keep the engine lubricated.
