Sygnergy G696Z…

While I was waiting for the “extra” parts to come in (Thursday & Friday), I disassembled the clutch stack for the third bearing block. I pulled out the main shaft and slid it into the 3 bearing.

Feburary, and the new build continues…


Sygnergy G696Z…

Here we are in February!

Well, not much going on, just working a lot. No word from Mark or Bill...MIA?

I have a new project coming, hopefully in a couple of weeks. I'll be writing a full review along with build pic's, maiden flight (w/video?), maintenance issues, and after thoughts. I have everything needed for this build except for 2 kits.

And...there is a fun fly that I am planning to attend...more on that later.

So I had it put in the side of the case and with a mod for putting the lever on the side like it should be ,,, and so it was comfortable for my old hands ... It looks like crap but it works and that is all I care about .
