Well everything is covered up with 0 alum other than switch and battery connector. Or do you want to see the motors up close? The firewall was to narrow to hold all 4 screws so I used 3 to hold motor in place.

Brenda, I liked the sound of the twin electric motors and that they did not sound toooooo! loud. I would like to get a better look at your installation on those motors if possible.

Very first flight. Needs some trim work moving weight. Going to move battery to nose and hide it like I did on the L-10.

Looking good Brenda... have you decided on the scheme?

As I used to live near Torrance California I was thinking the training wing that was based there. They came in two different colors. One was polished alum and the other was OD green and a sand.

I will go with piano wire for my lead outs. I have had more luck with that type of set up.

Bob,
I so agree with you on that. I have a problem. I ran out and can not think of the correct size so I can try to find online. I really need the same size wire that comes in the Black Hawk Models kits. Single wire, easy to wrap, easy to make ends.

Lines are inside the square holes. Under pressure they are dead center and lots of clearance. You could add some dope to the holes to make them stronger if you like.

Bellcrank looks good.  Will the lines carve the holes without reinforcement of some kind?

Used a Guillows bellcrank and cut it down to size.

Lead out wire by Perfect. I used some tiny straws and epoxy.
