Here's a quick link to my time lapse shots of a sport copter lightning build. :whoo:
All the sub-assemblies were completed prior to the final assembly (otherwise it would have been 5 hrs of me just standing in one spot... pretty boring :)

The photos were taken in 5 minute increments... do the math... yikes :eek:hwell:

Cool video. The time-lapse was an entertaining touch. It really allows one to see how much is really involved in a build.

Also, excellent ride. I like the tail!! Well, for that matter, I like the whole thing.

That build went by way to fast. How about a couple still shots of the finished product so we can admire your handiwork.

Jim:

I love your tail graphics! Is it painted on or some type of a a vinyl application?

If it is something stuck on or glued on, is it available?

I have a nearly identical machine that I'd like to put the colors on...
