I learned as a kid from my dad........if its important, put it at least 3inches off the ground. Floods happen in the home all the time.

Hope your wings survive.

Bummer. I see Murphy's Law is working for you to. I had to have the Sewer dug up again this morning in the alley this time. I got lucky and the City took care of it and were back in business.

Chin up. Warm weather is coming.

For a second there I thought you were being really mean The Ulti is a freakin crazy 3D machine. I think I'll be alright.....I'll know more in the AM after things dry out more. As long as the wing tubes fit back in there is really not much more to hurt on the foam core stuff. Everything else in the shop is on pallets, carts, etc. Even the Viper twins are packed away in the trailer.... for some reason I left these on the floor leaning against the wall

I'll have the Ulti at Cornhuck if you want a Pull on it even if I have to re-make or buy new wings for it.

Terry, sorry to hear this: as if the harsh winter was not enough to deal with for you guys!
Foam wings do survive water better than build up wings.
I hope everything turns out OK!

Well, wings dried out over the weekend and other than a major wrinkle fest going on with the covering....the tubes fit in and the sheeting under the covering does not feel bad. Seams in sheeting feel good and look good where I can see them. All hinges are all good. I did not have much iron or heat gun work to do on the plane since new, so I'm sure the covering will be pretty easy to get straightened back out.

Maybe if work allows this weekend I'll work on getting it cleaned up and re-doing my flying wires like Jeff showed me.

We got soaked at Joe Nall 3 yrs ago. My Extras ailerons filled up with water. Had to poke holes in the covering to let the water out. I let everything dry out and reshrunk the covering and flew it for 3 more yrs. You'll be alright. Just let it dry out real good

Engine recommendations

I have a older 3W 80 B2 engine that I had on a QQ Python and it flew it very well. Just wondered if it would be enough engine for this airframe. No canisters just Jtec mufflers and a lipo battery set up. I know this is a older thread but maybe someone could give me their input. Just sport type flying no hardcore 3d stuff. TIA

If you're engine is on par with the DA 85 the is video of it on PAU website and YouTube flying it is plenty of engine.

Only difference would be the weight. I had the 3W in a old Aeroworks 300 and it flew it fine too. If the overall weight will come in about the same as the Python I think it will be fine. The Ultimate is a little cleaner airframe to boot

Been looking at this Ultimate for some time and just pulled the trigger. Hopefully I can pick it up soon as I live real close to them. I have a DLE 111 on cans in a Challenger but need a tad more giddy up, so I will replace the DLE for a GP 123 and put the DLE in this Ultimate along with the cans. Should be a great combo.

And here it is and what a beautiful piece of work, everything is so clean and tight. Makes me wonder why I was thinking of getting an EMHW Ulti and go through the building and covering. Thanks PAU/ Herve!
Tomorrow I'll get started by going over it with an iron and cutting out the needed holes whilst at it.
