    I think the battery compartment will alway's be in the way unless the battery can be moved back some how just enough to fit it if the weight of the front unit keeps the cg from moveing the battery back.I'm starting to smell smoke from thinking about it.:confused::cool:

    Always thought it was funny Wild.

    I used to watch the differences between the Air Force and Navy during take off at several different air stations.

    The Air Force dudes got right up pretty quick.

    The Navy guys milked that runway :p

    I guess it’s because Naval aviators don’t usually get to use runways during taking off. It’s hold on to your “Bollocks” in a cat shot mostly but when they do get some pavement, they run all the way out to the end before lifting into the air.

    It’s as if they never had any runway to play with before.

    Thanks for the compliment Flyby. We shall see how she flies. I hope I don't regret putting in the time finishing it before I maiden her. But I think it will be awesome. :D How you coming on your 34? I just finished the airframe on mine. Waaaaay easier than the Hornet! It should be quite the floater.:) Looking at a dual maiden I am.

    “How am I coming on my 34” you say?

    Well the old girl I’m married to is a might older than 34 years Flyte, heck we’ve been married for 46 years so I guess it’s coming right along. :p

    You are still just a young man then Bimo.

    My old tired but is still out pouring concrete today!
    I’m getting too old for that crap. I was 63 in this picture about a year ago weighed in about 205 lbs:

    Then my boys snookered me into doing a Gator wrestleing match to raise money for our shooting club so I had to put on a little weight to fight that bad old alligator. I’m 64 here and weighing in at about 245-250 lbs but the Bad old Gator goes about 400.

    If this 46 year thing lasts one or two more years I’m thinking it might be a permanent deal, guess we’ll see!

    My Grandfather Raymond Revere Brown and Miss Myrtle we’re married 78 years before they both passed away.

    The old girl was in her 90’s and the old man was 98. Myrtle’s Sister was 105.

    I’d take that stretch if I could make it.
