Building,building and building

It's been a while since I've posted anything in this thread, but today,I have time.
I had a friend visit an RC swap meet a couple of months ago.Sadly for me,he called me on the phone and mentioned to me what was available
Those calls always cost me,and sure enough that call did.I ended up purchasing an ISR U2 short kit,and an MM F86 foam kit for next to nothing.
First in the build log was the U2.I built her strong but light over the next two months.She came out at 73 OZ with a carbon joiner and 87 OZ with a steel joiner.
Considering the span is 80 " and the cord is a massive 13 " leading down to 5",the total is just about right.
I maidened her two weeks ago,and the U2 flys like I thought.She needs decent lift,but flys well with good air.Tip stall will happen if she slows down to much.
I also finished the F86.For light air and a different look on the slope.she's fun to fly.The 86' was a quick build and since I had all the gear,the entire build including the kit ran me $40
Here are a few shots of the U2 .
