The FX Cirrus

Work has begun to get the FX-Cirrus pictured above flight ready. The wing shown mounted actually had a broken spar. That was fixed this evening. In addition, a new dark blue elevator was cut and control horn was mounted. Robert, the guy I bought the plane from, had an extra light blue wing and elevator. I will be keeping those as spares.

This plane will have an OS 40 FP mounted to the nose. Will keep you posted.

The Blue Devil (Demon) has also had some recent work done to it. The wing is now bolt on and has some extra reinforcement added to it. Mike from the club folded his demon wing on a hard landing. Mind you, that was with the gear mounted in the wing. Since mine is now mounted in the wing, he suggested the reinforcement.

So many projects, so little time (sigh)...
