Awesome progress and work!I've got most the fill work done on the bottom of the Dragonfly canard. Then I sprayed it all one color so it was easier to see what was left. Once this is finalized, all the major fill work is complete.

On the big project I've got the hydraulic lines finished out to the gear legs. Hopefully be doing gear swings for the first time in quite a while next week!

@dwalker, I'll be in touch soon reguarding the templates.
So, bought a borescope (always wanted one). Drained out the oil, and put the scope down the magneto hole. Yep, there it was lying in the bottom. Fashioned a hook out of safety wire and with more than a little fiddling fished it back out. Since I had a borescope, checked out my exhaust valves. Looked good.Maybe it hit the magneto face and bounced into the engine? There is a gap between the gear and the face that I can just get two fingers into, the clamp is a little smaller than that. Tried taking off the cover for where a prop control would go spilling about a quart of my new oil, don't see anything in there. Doesn't sound like anything hitting when I turn the prop.
