Hello Adventgps,

its looking good.   I like the choice of the V-shape tail over the inverted V style.

do you follow DYIDrones.com ?   its a site for amateur Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.   they also have a podcast.

I learned about them from the RobotsPodcast on iTunes.

good luck this weekend.   I hope you have someone to help you take video.

it was a broken trainer from a friend...... i had to repair and modify the structure at the same time....

was like this:

I repaired the wings, made new ribs, changed some wood panels, also eliminated de hidedral, had to make a deep cut in the middle to get rid of the angle between them, glued them together with the needed reinforcements, in the fuselagem y made a cut afther the wing placement and made a new firewall to mount an electric motor in pusher position, also repaired the nose of the airplane in order to leave more space to install the electronics.....

made some changes on the horizontal stab, it became a v shape tail, cool!!!!!!

today i think i will start the covering of the airplane with Monokote...

also have to look for a landing gear for it.....
