    Yes it is. It is a much improved design over the piranha. Right now it kinda looks like a platypus though. But that will change.

    Well, let's take a look at my steering mount. It's an awesome mount that I drew up and cut out on a plasma table. Strong, sturdy and good looking. Spent the afternoon building and installing it. When I was finished I turned the steering box left and my wheels went right. Never checked to see if the box was upside down. OOPS!!!

    Well I fixed the steering issue today and got a rolling chassis. Here are some pics of it on it's own wheels now.

    ARG! DAMN YOU! haha. Actually there is a little planning behind the scenes here. It involves an LS, R-16, chassis modifications for visability....

    I like that a lot. That frame can definitely handle that. I look forward to watching that develop. keep me informed. Are you thinking rear engine or mid engine like mine. I think rear would give better balance for in air activities. Mine seems to drop the nose

    I am thinking mid engine actually, but rear is not out of the question yet. My car dropped the nose too, but I think that was due to lack of throttle application at the take off. My car now will do a sick sky wheelie of too much throttle is added just before flight.
