Super Grand Esprit, Sagitta XC and Aquilla XC are one of the greats when I was learning to fly, it’s great to be able to build these rare models.

Our local flying field, plenty of room to fly models. It’s owned privately and has a full size aircraft landing strip.

Battery tray installed, flaps connected and working, but not configured. Almost ready to balance her up. (ignore the 6cell there, it isn’t for the Element, I was doing two things at once. The 6 cell is for the A-10)

Tarot Tray & Strap

Steff talked me into a shoulder strap for the TX, i’m a thumb flyer and the neck starts to get a bit of a sore spot. Really nice for the money. Have to do a little engineering to get the Horus X12 to fit, but only minor.
