I went some way to completing the pilots seat before going on a break down country. I have yet to attach the lap belt.

Still more dark coloured items in a black hole.

Not too much will be done now until after our National Championships are done and dusted. I've chosen not to compete in R/C Scale due to my less that fully functioning left arm after shoulder surgery but I get to be Contest Director and most likely a judge. Lucky me!

Back on the job with a one arm handicap. It would have been oh so nice to have had a simple pole with a handgrip, but such is not the case as you can see. There is still some tidying up to do and the brake lever to add as well as cables and wiring from the yoke.

All the rest of the cockpit is such a jumble of bits and pieces and there is so much of it it’s become a little daunting. I’m still about 6 weeks away from any major lifting.
