Pilot 40% 330 Recover and Build

    Might want to start a new thread for the contest. I'm thinking you'll get more submissions. So far the only people that know about the contest are the ones following this thread.

    Not that anyone could possibly beat my rainbow design. But we should probably give them a fighting chance.:D

    A few more toys arrived today for the 330. The new rubber for the Airman Wheels along with the forgotten bearings for the same. So my "needed items" list is starting to dwindle down quite nicely. The big hurdle will have to wait until after Christmas. The kids, Grandsons and new Granddaughter will have to come first.

    So far I have secured:
    New 3W 170CS
    SWB Engine mount
    Headers, L90 canisters
    KS Comfort mounts for the L90's
    Carbon Fiber spinner and back plate
    Tru-Turn spinner and back plate, (this time I have a choice)
    Falcon CF 32x12 prop, (I will probably order a 33x11W also)
    5.25" Airman Wheels
    White Rose Tail wheel assembly
    RC Opto-Kill engine kill switch
    TDRC two servo multi-plex wiring for the wings
    TDRC Anti-vibration ignition mount
    Sullivan Super Klunk
    Dubro HD ball links
    Titanium turnbuckles
    Wiring harnesses
    Dual Wolverine switches(depends on radio used, may not use them)
    STAR Fuel Dot

    And now the biggest hurdles, the items I still need to acquire:
    TDRC fuel tank (not a hurdle, just have to get it ordered)
    Servo arms
    Radio System
    Oh yeah, and a pilot too.
    COVERING SCHEME!!!:lol2::laughing:

    I will update the thread as more information becomes available. Thank you everyone for staying tuned.:way_to_go:

    So I've been looking at new radio systems. Been really thinking seriously on the DX20. But I ran across a brand new one today. Spectrum is releasing a new radio. The iX 12 has a quad core Android processor and a 4in full-color scroll screen. Hmmm!!
