What do you have on your work bench right now? Project? Repair? Top secret scratch built UFO?

I have a new Castle 80HV ICE 2 for sale. It has been opened from the packaging, but it has never been used. It use to have a deans plug soldered on, but I cut it off.

Asking $145 plus shipping.

Here are some photos of the build from my OMP Yak 55M.

She is powered by a DA-120 on jtech mufflers. Hitec servos all around and is controlled by a Futaba 18 MZ Radio.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but as a fan of ATTF, I just heard the podcast about this forum and wanted to sign up and join in the community. I think Gary did a great job explaining what this forum was all about and what he said about the larger forums made a lot of sense. I was not happy...

Saw this plane being built in our build clinic over on RCG and I thought to myself, I gotta have one of those.


I am going to use this thread to discuss my build and progress into learning to fly 3D with this airplane....
