Well just finished this Skywing. Had to order a new receiver so waiting for it to do the final setup.
This is my first Skywing and it will not be last. Best ARF I have had the pleasure of building.

Right!?! It's amazing how the SW planes just fall together. Everything just fits and the finish/fit is great. I've been putting together my 120" TBM and it's been a lot of sanding/gluing to get things to fit well, normally I'd say that's expected in an ARF. But skywing planes are spoiling me!!
Skywing is starting to make PNP electric planes in the 67" and down range. Can you imagine, getting a high quality PNP aerobatic balsa plane, add your receiver/battery, do your setup and fly?!!? talk about a game changer.

It would be hard to build thread on the plane you just put it together, done. The only thing I had difficulty with was where is the CG. Then I found it in the plane difficult to see but it was there.
 
Been wanting to pick up a tap guide, but decided to give building one myself a try. I used aluminum for this first attempt, as it's easier to work with, and just started making parts as I went along. Don't know if it's to standard, but it does work good.
