Default Still moving slow...

Didn't have a lot of time yesterday, and I'm not really in a rush. the engine will be away at least a week, and I need to wait for the weekend to cut the frames since that's going to make a lot of noise I cant do it after dinner when the kids are sleeping upstairs.

I pulled all the cyclic servos off, removed the rear canopy mounts and got the tail boom mount out to remove the front tail transmission.

I think the throttle servo is still in the way of the cutting template, but after that I *think* you can leave everything else if you are careful. Once I get to that point, this is the plan Ive come up with for cutting the frames:

1 - remove one frame side, leaving all the bearing blocks, etc in place
2- modify and reinstall frame 1
3 - pull second frame side
4 - modify second frame side
5 - install new bearing blocks, etc
6 - install second modified frame side

I know, its not much less work that just tearing it down completely to parts and rebuilding from scratch, but you might get away with leaving much of your wiring in place.

Shop time so far: 3hr 45m
