    '' Constructing the box''
    "Re: Constructing 'The Box' 11 hours ago by Skydive130 ( Warrant Officer) "I have just taken delivery of this kit, and the joy opening the box and getting that wafting smell of fresh wood, nothing like it! Having check the excellent quality laser cut wood against the parts list, it seems that the basic box built first is now supplied as 6mm and 5mm ply instead of balsa. Can I presume this is a change to the
    test kit
    ? I am not worried about the extra weight, less ballast at the end. My only other issue now is trying to source the HobbyKing SK3 840kv motor you have used in your beautiful model as it’s currently out of stock in the Uk and EU, living only 3 miles from HobbyKing UK means I can order and sometimes pick up same day. Does anyone else have an suitable alternative recommendations for the motor if I cannot source an SK3. I could order from HobbyKing in HK as showing in stock, but the postage is high?" Hi Skydive130 I have moved this to the end of my blog so that others can see it easily. Yes, I understand that the box is now all ply construction, I doubt if the added weight will be any problem at all. Re: the HK motor, speak to Mike at VMW I'm sure that he or his colleague Alan can suggest a suitable alternative. Good luck with the build and ......Please Do A Build Blog πŸ˜πŸ‘. Robbob.
