Default ...And it is done!

After twenty-six years I have completed my Pro Series Impulse kit.


I thought with the model almost finished being built and sealed & sanded it would be a relatively easy and quick to finish.

I was wrong.

Several weeks of poor painting weather held up the project but now that is all behind me.

My model came in a bit above the manufacturer's listed weight/mass of 8.3 oz.
About 50% above.
Mine weighed in at 12.3 oz (Less motors).
Originally assembled with Titebond the only epoxy used was during the fin installation and fillets.

First flight is to be performed at NARAM-60 with two Estes D12-5 motors.
