3M Aerotech Extra 300 Refresh - 'Bourbon Racer' V2.0!!

Well after 3 years of full size flying and limited RC, I brought the old Aerotech Bourbon Racer from Jeremy on a whim 6 weeks ago. After spending the day going to CHCH and coming home I decided I had 2 choices, either fly the pretty tired old airframe or spend some time and give it little tidy up. So 6 weeks on this is what has finally rolled out of the garage ... couple of minor things to finish off this week and should be in the air on the weekend ... good times!

After watching Bogan again this year at Warbirds I thought next time I do another model it will have smoke, so sure enough it does. Along with new covering, paint, canopy, wiring, servos, more control throws etc, about all that remains is the DLE170 which now has some cannisters. Interested to see if the 3 blade has enough welly, but time will tell. Don't think I have added too much weight to it!

Will get some pics and vid of it flying in the weekend.

For those who don't know this is the old TAS raffle plane from 2007.

Cheers,
Jonathan
