Power box Mercury with GPS

I removed all of the provided composite control horns and cleaned up all the edges. I also scuffed up the area of the horns being submerged in the surfaces. All control horns are epoxied in using Loctite HY-9462

Opened up the cowl this morning. Forgot to charge the Dremel battery so I'll need to wait to clean the intake cuts up.

Looking forward to the build. Krill makes some great looking planes. Love their Yak 55M. Wonder how their flight characteristics compare to the balsa and ply competition.

Hate when that happens. Will likely eventually replace with a chorded version. Though its nice to grind fiberglass outside the shop.

I just ordered a second Dremel for the spare 12v Lion battery today. Cheaper than ordering the battery only.

I have the corded version and a 30m extension lead fixes the grinding outside issue

Received my new handy dandy battery with accessories. And a new diamond burr bit set.

I'll be able to get a bit more done tonight and tomorrow am.
