Initial cowling plug. Catto is producing the new cowlings for the BCSC but we did not want to wait on the completed product so we made our own.

Put the Aero Fab stick control in. Set me back $3300. Hope it pays off. This means I can land anywhere now correct? I mean it is all about the stick

We were hoping to be done by now but we had a significant problem with the paint wicking. Needless to say we had to wet sand the entire thing and have a do-over. The paint is now beautiful!

She is in for final assembly and looking to be flying in 3-4 weeks. 35″ AKBW’s will be on her soon and hoping she comes in under 1250…Fingers are crossed
