The main job tonight was to create a firewall for my motor. I used a piece of Lite Ply from my Cadence Pattern kit as the source material and cut out a 46mm square piece of the material. I used another rounded corner on that material to set the radius on the three other corners of the firewall.

From there I used a 3/8" bit to open up the center for the shaft that exits the rear of the motor and then marked where to drill for the X-mount.

Should I use wood screws or bolts and nuts to attach the motor?

I'm thinking some 6-32, 8-32, or a metric size near that for short bolts with lock nuts or even blind nuts but thought I would ask.

After that I filled in a few spots with balsa filler and then relaxed and read. I also ordered some Hitec HS-85MGs to go in this and I'll probably order a HobbyWing SkyWalker 60A ESC later instead of using the ZTW I had planned on.

I went and looked at the prices on the HobbyWing FlyFun V5 and Platinum 60A ESC's and I'll probably go that route. I like being able to use my programmer to make adjustments so I won't have to carry my old laptop to the field.

I just got a Radiomaster TX16S and so far I love it. Feels a lot nicer than I thought it would, given the price. The big color screen is nice, and easy to see. So many cool features it's hard to describe them all. Built in spectrum analyzer. OpenTX isn't that hard once you understand how the channels work. There's even a couple of wizards that basically set the plane up for you. Took me probably 20 minutes to get my giant stick with flaps set up.

Love the multiprotocol capability. I was able to bind it to my Futaba SHFSS receiver easily, and also a FrSky delta 8 in FrSky mode.

Servos finally arrived yesterday and I did some sanding of spots I filled in. I had an extended guest due to the weather so I'm hoping to pick up some tack cloth and star laying down some covering.
