    Thanks Steve,

    I think it going to look pretty fun in the air.

    Slightly different tact with the wing struts this time, using Aerostream tubing from Keleo Creations ( when they were making the tubing - massaged round tubing into an airfoil shape )

    Spent some time with the angle grinder and file to massage the 6061 bar stock into shape. Plan on gluing the pieces into place and then six tapped holes for 4-40 button head screws.

    Thanks Stephane,

    I should be a Fun airplane......I've been watching an old video from the Coachella AeroTow 2013 that has it flying around ( and making a lot of prop noise)

    Meanwhile, ....back at the Masking / Painting Ranch.......it's going to be an Omaha Orange Sunrise ( first spray coat anyway ).

    Had to cut out the left side Icarus graphic again as I placed it too high on the fuselage and there was no wing image below the window. Referenced some old pictures and got it a little lower so the accent lines will show up this time.

    Now just waiting for paint to dry so I can mask off the Turquoise area and get some Omaha Orange.

    Now I remember why I've been procrastinating on this ......

    Icarus image paint masks - cutout all the Accent details for this one.....then transferred to the paint masks .....and then cut them out .

    Hi Len,

    Fourth picture in post 1 is current fin/ rudder vs. old version
    Original PayLoad Master 100 suffered from depleted electron resources and "surface contact"
    the following "compact" photos are circa 2013

    Decided to re-re-re-engine with the new DLE-130 so as to avoid making a new cowl ( didn't want the spark plug caps sticking out of the Icarus wing graphic on the front of the cowl )

    In looking over the Falcon Propeller chart, I won't be loosing that much performance from the 170/150 ( 32.5 kg thrust vs 38 Kg. )

    Hi Scot,
    I'm so happy to see you back on this build. Reading the engine post above leave me wondering, are you going 120 or 170?
    Its been a while since I have seen the Payload Master, what are the parts in the forth picture of post 1?

    After the standard Poly-Spray application ( so the covering won't be see thru ) it's on to the base white
