  2. The Coupe is done!! Ready for maiden as soon as I can find a place big enough. It came out a little bit heavier than I wanted but at least if I only fly it I wouldn't have to register ;)

    Final weight is 105 grams (3.7oz) I wanted it sub 100 grams so I only missed t by a little.

    Added a bunch of scale stuff though, which probably where that damn 5 grams came from. Carb was made out a piece of 1/4 sq. and a rounded piece of 1/16th, the steps are rounded 1/16th and the pitot tube is rounded 1/16th and a stick pin with the head cut off. The windshield and skylight are glued in with Zap Formula 56o, I left the side widows out for extra cooling air exit and also to save a bit of weight.

    Prop is a cut down and re-contoured GWS 7x3.5, now a 6x3.5.

    Luckily my pre planning paid off the CG is right on the button without any additional weight, hopefully it will stay that way and I wont have to add any after the test flight.

    All in all I'm happy with it and here's to hoping it pans out! And since I'm on the little stuff kick and until something breaks on the job front, I also got the Sig Mr. Mulligan that I'm going to ATTEMPT a rubber powered free flight with.
