I really need to say thanks to Jeremy for helping me hinge the elevators and aileron. It is big enough that it would be impossible to hinge alone. Also, thanks for posting the pictures for me. I have a goal of finishing the aileron and covering the fuselage tonight.

He gets all excited about a new prop he found.. buys two or three..
Mounts them to the bird or birds and we roll out back to try them...
Then while in his flight He'll say this prop sucks!! and it goes on the wall.....lol
If it can't be heard from 4 miles away? it sucks! plain and simple and what is all the prop builders number one goal these days? .. it ain't performance.

And your new awesome quiet prop is firmly planted to joe's wall.
I say to hell with noise rules on giant scale planes!! Let them Sing!!

Over this last weekend I was excited to see that if I stayed on task this week I would be able to see this bird fly over the next weekend. So I got on the ball and call in an order of SWB 2" arms, fuel tubing and carbon fiber tubes to make my rudder linkage. I called this order in to Chief Aircraft on Tuesday which meant I should see my package Thursday. After the package did not arrive today (Friday) I called them to see where it was. I was then told that because of a dispute that accured a year ago, they would no longer accept orders from me. My big question was, why then was I able to place the order on Tuesday and not be told about this then? Also, why had no else called me to let me know by now? This is some of the same things that happened in the dispute. The dispute was over an 85 cc Raven from EG (not a small purchase for me) that was damaged and defective straight out of the box. There were many issues including: the add stated it came with a carbon fiber spinner and I received an aluminum spinner painted black with scratches, a damaged cowling, the wing tube socket was put in incorrectly making it so the wing tube would not go in, the fuselage stingers in the bottom where broken, where the turtle deck and the rudder met was bulged, the hinges on the elevators and ailerons where so misaligned that you could not move them to full deflection, and the bevels were so bad that it looked like a 4 year old had cut them. I my mind this was a lot of things wrong for a $699.00 item. I was told that it was made by EG in Germany and would be high quality, it was not. I put forth a big effort to work this out with Chief directly at first. When Dana the owner, became completely ignorant and uncooperative I had to take it to my bank to mediate the issue. His version of fixing the problem for me was to have me ship it back to him at a cost of $300 and then he would review it to see what he would do from there. He would not budge from this resolution even when I offered for him to just send me a new cowling and the correct spinner. Like I said ignorant and uncooperative. So in the end through bank mediation I paid the shipping to send back just the cowling and the spinner and Dana then sent me a new cowling and the correct spinner. This resolution is what I thought was a win for me and a bigger win for Dana because I still had to make all of the repairs to the plane. I enjoyed working with Steve at Chief because he really knows his products. I used to call and ask for him because I knew I would get all my questions answered and get the product I needed. I am not a person to air my grievances out in the cyber world. I like to leave issues in the past and move forward. Unfortunately Dana does not have that same view and I am going to tell everyone how he chooses to deal with customers and conduct his business. At this point my frustration level and disappointment is through the roof. I do not think there is anything Dana could do to rectify this. Even if he sent me his largest most expensive rc airplane for free I would not accept it.

So I am going to everything I can to find the part locally and stick with my goal of flying it this weekend. Cross your fingers!

Bummer on the parts Joe, also not cool they blacklisted you for just trying to get what you paid for.

Still think we will get in the air. Looking forward to seeing it tomorrow.

Tonight went on to some cowl work. Mounting the engine with the pipes to locate holes etc.
Yesterday and Wednesday was some covering projects.

Oh and I threw in a pic of the battle wall. There is a part there I think from every oops that has been had in at least the last two.. years.. or so My fav is the 27x10 Carbon.. Somebody got in a hurry to get in the air for some 100cc race laps and in haste forgot to fuel...lol

Well if you don't want it, you can send it my way
I seem to remember someone fighting to get a plane ready fly!
Looking forward to a flight report.

Unfortunately not. Unimportant stuff like family and work have got in the way lol. Plus, kind of lost my mojo for a while. Now Dave went and helped corrupt me with something else to take up my time!

Is the plane a go for today?
