Is it just me or do we all take ages to do things?

Well perhaps not but I never seem to have enough time to do everything!

Stevo restored this Flair Harvard in 2015. **LINK** I think he advertised it on eBay, leastways I bought it sometime in 2015. I recall picking it up in a south London supermarket car park when I was on my way home in the two "tonner" to pick up my furniture. It came complete with five servos and a battery.

Fitting the engine, an OS61 FS Surpass, was not straight forward but I finally got it into the model yesterday and flashed it up on the Great Mate stand. i need to adjust the throttle throw because I could not stop the engine from running. I had to resort to the old trick of chucking a rag into the prop!

Once I've sorted that out and dealt with a grumbling aileron servo, I plan to maiden the model.

I'll attach a few pictures of the model later for your entertainment. The model is a credit to Stevo. My French clubmates think that I built it but I'm not going to tell them who did! cheeky

As the old saying goes.

How many pensioners does it need to change a light bulb?

One, might be an all day job though.

PS. Hasn't forgotten, yet, the doculam. No time.

It depends on how much I want to do them.

Some things "right now!!" Some "Tomorrow" which never comes!

Does it matter ?

They say if you want something doing quickly, ask a busy person.

That way the rest of us have time to do what we want, when we want.

I could be lethargic, if I didn't already suffer from apathy.

Who says age doesn't have benefits ?

I used to do it for a living and the sooner I finished, the sooner I could invoice and start the long wait for payment. I'm still quick. Great Planes Electri-Cub...3 afternoons from the kit. Alongside household chores, shopping and other model stuff.
