ID:	156644 Wires on top done, now for the real fun. Double wires from each wing mount to landing gear, then double wires from each gear to the center fuselage.
    so when I get bored I can switch gears and work on the wheel pants!

    • Started fitting the wheel pants...9 pieces each side. Ugh, gotta get it done to get the wires finished. Click image for larger version

            Fortunately, the gf got me one of those last Christmas! Yes, that fuselage is 3/4” thick in some places!
            Thanx!

                  Ordered a Platinum Hobbywing ESC instead of chancing the Castle Cremations, and left side nearly done fitting.
