  1. The upper top wing plate edges were a snug fit and you would almost think of trimming it open a bit but with a little twisting and pulling it will lay together just perfect and you shouldn't have a gap.

  2. Oh, did you put the esc's behind the spar?

    Yes, because I already have the harness soldered up for a tricopter.
     
  4. Well it is winter so might as well put some skis on. :) Now printing off a few little brackets so I can add some springs/suspension to the front of the skis to hold their nose up.

  5. A bunch of little brackets to glue on and then attach some springs. :) Finally got to use some of those 200 assorted springs for $3.00 from China. Tension worked out just perfect , holds the tip of the skis up. 2019_0106_120646_001.JPG 2019_0106_123604_001.JPG 2019_0106_131218_002.JPG

  11. A little better picture of the ski setup. The front because it is a caster setup with just a wheel not a problem but with a ski we need to make sure it doesn't turn 90 degrees just because it wants to so there is a little guide wire that pulls towards the back plus I added a small rudder to the bottom back of the ski so hopefully that does it.

    I`ve never heard you say we have way more than enough thrust before:p.
    I hope you get a break in the weather, I`m really interested how this twin performs:)

  19. It is suppose to warm up tomorrow and the winds have started to subside so it could happen sooner then I thought. ;)
