like watching paint dry …

the recipe for watching paint dry:

a bit of PS-5 Black  follow up with  PS-59 Dark Metallic Blue, back it with PS-1 White to brighten it up a bit, then add PS-57 Pearl White and back it all with PS-12 Silver and you get this :

now to let it dry overnight , tint the windows and maybe do a coat of PS-55 Flat Clear. I like it a lot even though i forgot to mask off the rear lights 😀

That smell

Lets kick things of . I have been super busy with other things so there was not much time for RC , but i did get some Blade flying time in.

I took the Wraith up to Roznik to check out the devastation the sleet made and to start the 2014 RC season.  It all went fine until i started noticing a certain smell … of burning windings. The 27 turn stock axial kicked the bucket , it still works , and i’ve managed to get the Wraith almost to the top , but it lacks the torque it used to have . So its time for a new motor .

ill use the disassembly time to swap around the receiver to the 6 channel and maybe change the transmission case to a metal one, if i can get it in time.
