From what I know MK2 hasnít had anything drastically changed since it was Chiaíd. Not a bad idea to check on some stuff after flying 350+ around the pylons a handful of years in a row.

    Was this just a "school project"? Or is this a serious modification that they will be utilizing this September?
    From reading through it they were planning on test flying it and it seems like they still do... Iím thinking itís a real deal
