That build looks excellent. Makes me want the Haf X more and more...
It's also on sale for $20 off and free shipping. That freed up about $50 on my Christmas budget

i know you guys are as sad as i am that the reactor project is on hold for a little while BUT i decided i at least owe it to you guys to let you know what i HAVE been doing with my time recently.



my dad and i finally got the airplane back together and the wings painted!



we have been running the engine for a few hours off the bottle to make sure its all good before we start actually testing the rest of the airframe (its been flawless )



inside is about 85% finished as well!



we needed to take the canopy off to get easier access to the spar that the wing spars mount to



if your wondering what the inside of a wing looks like. its just that...



fist wing is ON! now just need to plumb the fuel lines to the selector and wire in the electric and hook the control cables to the control stick



bad picture but LOTS of wires coming through and come braided hose for fuel



second wing ON!

now all we have to do is finish the wiring, fuel, and control cables and its ready for inspection and then first flight!



one more for good measure!

Sweet!

The wood on that instrument panel is

Is there going to be a windshield kind of thing or will you just have a fresh breeze as you're flying?
post #1885 of 2207
Nice plane. I can't imagine how much fun it would be to actually fly one.

I'd be scared to fly something that I built, though.

i agree... the wood is an Oak vernier that is epoxied to an aluminum backing. that was then sanded down to about 50% of its original thickness (about an 8th of an inch to start with) then we painted on 12 or 13 really thin layers of clear lacquer with good wet sanding between each coat with a high grit sand paper. you should see it for real... its GORGEOUS.

and yes. their is a windshield

in the first picture its on the fuselage in the open position and in the last couple its on the floor under the right wing.

flying is the second most fun thing i have ever done i love it. my favorite place EVER is about 1000 feet up about 30 mins before dusk.

Dad and i have been building cars and stuff for years and we are VERY meticulous when we build something that we will be putting our selves in danger in. and then the FAA requires ALL home built aircraft (in the US) to get inspected for "air worthiness" so if its not safe they wont let us fly it. but it is.... one of dads friends is a retired inspector and he has been looking over our shoulders for almost the entire build.




but yea... between that, getting ready for school, and some personal stuff my time is pretty much ALL taken up... and the time thats not i just dont want to move XD

drag race in a 71 dodge charger

11.3 seconds at 98mph .25 trap time

the car was good for sub 10 but im not that good....


i wish those are a bit out of my price range unless you can find me something $200 or less that is >22 inches

it was about 200 for the rest of the project which was pretty much just sleeving and a couple fabricated parts. (150+motm winnings)
