I'll take mine down to Kirky if the weather plays ball jeff as I'd love to get a photo of all 3 together assuming pete will be there. Paul if your watching I'd like to get the same pic with the quads for the site when you finish the latest build?

Hope to maiden the plane for our geoff on sunday if i get it finished I picked up his rx and tx today and told him what i needed it for.

Be carefull on the aileron rudder conrol rods jeff, I built my first polaris with the rods on top and the motor under power tilted forward and the prop shreaded the rods.
Look at the 120 I built, the rods are under the fuse looks like yours could be switched easy before you go any further.
I think pete put his under the fuse too?

Your control horns need to be moved further forward to jeff you want the control horn hole you connect the rod through to sit right on the hinge line for better and even throws.
