right-1

11/20/04 -- Along the front edge are a servo box,the Rx and the two servos. Behind the servo box is the battery pack. Behind the first servo is the ESC and then the motor. The blue thing is the prop and the big clear dome-looking piece is the "pilot seat". The long white guys are the servo pushrods.

skid

11/20/04 -- The last gluage. Did I mention I love hemostats?

table-full

11/20/04 -- The pool table makes a great place to put this thing together. It's under 6-mil mylar...somewhere.

tail-gluing

11/20/04 -- The wing mounting tube and nose bra are almost dry. Here, the tail assembly is gluing. The drill holds the tail boom flat. The cards and the D cells hold the tail parallel to the board at the right height. The right tool for the right job!
