Build on Hold

Unfortunately I have had to place my build on Hold as I am still awaiting the delivery of 2 Clockwise (CW) Rotor Arms to replace the (CCW) Arms supplied so for.

I have built up to Pack 5 and have Packs 6 & 7 awaiting installation.

When the correct Rotor Arms are delivered I will have to disassemble the first rotor Arm and re-build with the Clockwise Rotor Arm.

The build will continue as soon as I receive the correct Arms.

We are off again!! Love

The 2 replacement Clockwise Rotor Arms have arrived - many thanks to Mt T!

First I have to rebuild the Front Left Rotor Arm assembly - using the replacement CW Rotor Arm. ( I can't hardly believe that it was a supply error way back in Pack 1)

The picture below show the correctly reassembled Front Left Rotor Arm (Clockwise)
