Hope somebody got some video to post ! I've been working like mad on mine again. Stabs almost done , wings are next. I'm at the part where its a million little details and feels like nothing gets done
Nice work chic.. very nice. How's it fly, lets hear a first flight report. And is thats an Army Cavalry logo on the tail right ?

No video and it flew great. Kevin did 2 tail slides and they were awesome. The axial rolls looked like they were on a string as they were so straight and true. Those were mine, the others were even better. Yes, that is the Cav logo on the tail and Vietnam service medal colors for the bottom scheme.

Brian,

Are you going to bevel the hinge line any more?

33 degrees up and down travel , 66 degrees total throw, most IMAC rates run between 8-12 maybe 20 for a snap.This lil birdie will see ZERO 3-d action so I'm definitely safe.

Turtle deck cut using soldering wire method, first cut was near perfect, starting to really look like an airplane.

I don't get it, can take multiple pictures from same angle with phone and some post upside down.. too late to mess with rotation. pardon any strained necks this causes. Lol.

If your taking them with an Iphone then you have to have the home button to your right. I'm left handed so I normally don't. The way I fix it is to just crop it a little on the phone. When you save the edit it will save it the correct way to upload properly.
