I posted a few construction photos of a SIG Astro Hog to alt.binaries.radio-control this morning.
It will be a tail dragger, powered by an OS 70 Surpass. It will have the receiver and S3004 servos that came with a Futaba 6XAS I lucked into for a good price. Covering will be red and white Ultracote in the same pattern as the box photos.
I'm having the plane built. I opened the box and started reading the manual; and knew there is no way I could build it. After I bought the kit, I saw a review that said something like "you need a chainsaw to build this plane."
The photos are a bit dark, but it gives me an idea of the progress that's being made.
The last message from the man building it said the framing was almost complete, then the carving and sanding can begin. He started it on 8/19 and the first 4 photos came on 8/20.
Since I haven't even soloed with my trainer, I told him I'm not in a hurry to get this one done. He will be displaying my plane at a show his club is doing on 9/12-9/13 at a mall in his home town; then he'll ship it to me.
I have a lot to learn before I try to fly a low wing tail dragger.
