"Looked like you were close to getting it flying.    Amazingly tough center section!    Put the wings back on.   It is worth another try. I find that having an autopilot in aircraft(even if it is just manual flight…"

Below are link to a condensed version of the presentation I gave, a time-lapse video of the build process and a flight video. Feel free to message me for details of the process or build.Presentation:…See More
