So all finished, just need weather to cooperate.

I rebuilt the tank with a M&R felt clunk and no straight tube section.
Otherwise I have used all the equipment supplied, even the purpose made hopper tank. Will see how it all works out.

Needs 2 x 4250 1 x 2200 and 1 x 1000 2s Li-pos used radio, turbine, electric gear to balance the model. I cut some of the formers to get the two 4250 Rx packs (millions of flights :-) ) further forward or nose weight would have been needed.

I have been doing some testing on the baby Dolphin and we have agreed some changes with Pilot-RC ready for the first delivery in early May.

What changes Dave, will it be an improvement over the big one?

Main one is in the picture (you can read more on HA) The other changes are functional quality changes.

I guess once this is put to bed I might get involved with updating the bigger one.
