        The build continues, a lot of little things to do before I get to covering. Its demoralizing walking out of the shop and feeling like so little progress has been made. But this helped.

          Color! While mine won't be nearly as colorful as Dustin's, it's still going to be bright. It's been a long time since I've done anything other patches. My expectations are pretty low so I've been pleasantly surprised with how it's turning out.

              after setting up the one i got from jim i urge you to make the hatch/canopy opening open up wider for two hands to pass through. the fuse is large but access is small. frustration in rx install will take its toll.. i think if you fix the canopy to the base and cut out the base floor to open it will allown more entry room.. do as you wish but my hands dont fit in tiny openings and it takes two for servo plugs................or just have plenty of extra servo lead to get things up to the top opening for install.

                  but it is by far a super floater and fun to relax and fly.. i would also think about making the battery box bottom a tad lower to be able to use more of todays modern packs at 5000ma 30c smart packs that are just as light as most 4000 packs we have on hand. a touch more ma never hurt when the weight doesnt go up. i will this winter cut away mine and move the lower floor tray plate down some.
