2nd Shongololo(#10) ready to fly

With just 2 and a half weeks to go to the F3B League round Zero, Shongololo #10 is now complete and ready for it's maiden flight.

It's already tasted a dork landing with it's nose poked into some wet soil so nose weight can be added. 180 grams of leads poured in got the weight as far forward as possible with and all up flying weight of 2190 grams. In the background you can see Rudi's plane. Wings joined and the first layers of the fuselage done!

Some nice little plastic cover fitted over the flap and aileron horns finishes off the wing nicely. A friend is making these on a card of 8.

He also makes some neat plastic covers with a bubble for covering the servo holes on the underside of the wing amongst all sorts of other vac-formed components. Scale pilots, Canopy's, Cowls etc.
You can contact Kobus Dirker directly on cell 082 886 4828 or email if you are interested in getting some vac-formed stuff
