Moved up because Mark wanted to know if the radio works. It doesn't.

I was hoping to save "the best" for last but that will go to the Boxed PT-19 as the box of propellers is next.

The EZ Bee was complete except for assembly instructions which Rene helped me with but parts were spread out among the other boxes.  

$14 worth of AA batteries yielded no results.  AM transmitter works so the fault lays with the receiver.  Connections are tight and the crystals match and appear ok.  I still have hope that I can get it working.

Thankfully years ago Kim sent me an almost identical Cox/Sanwa radio that does work although it's FM and the receiver is larger but still fits in the allocated space, but it's probably slightly heavier which might off set the delicate balance of this model.  A little tail weight might be needed.  Servos are the same size.

Intended as a single channel rudder only model it could be upgraded to a two channel rudder and elevator which the PO did and which I continued.

The wing is new and still in the package as is a spare tail section.  Probably replacements for a crashed airplane.  I still have to join the two wing sections.  An adhesive strip is supplied, but I think I'm going to epoxy it first.

I would try another set of crystals, they are pretty easy to damage.
