Art Applewhitie mini-frenzy

Art has the best shipping in the hobby; my order arrived in 2 days. I got a D5 Stealth, sized for the motor of the same name. I also got a D5 Helix, a 24mm Helix, and a 24mm Double Helix.

The D5 Stealth built itself when I wasn't looking (well, almost). I painted the top flat black and underside day-glo orange (both Rustoleum). Quick and dirty with no primer.

Then we went and listened to Gary and the Groove. Then I set up an assembly line. Finished all three Helices quickly, less one round of fillets and painting.
