Won the C-160 at the NVRC Auction on Sunday. It was a bit of fluke - thought it would be fun to just hang from the rafters. Then I got to looking at it and caught the bug to finish the build and fly it at CMB. Here are the before pictures.
Today I will start my build of the B-17 by Starmax. Have read all the comments and my overall impression is that this is going to be a fun build. The manual that came with the model is kinda sparce - pictures only for the most part. Mine is the PNP version.
Everything is still in the box at this moment.
Watched a lot of videos - pretty cool bird - can't wait to fly it. This one is gonna be an FPV platform with a 900mhz onboard camera. I am also considering a tail cam, a belly cam, and of course if I can - a bomb bay cam.
I will post pictures and video of the build in a build blog. I hope to have it ready to maiden on Saturday.
Comments, suggestions, and lessons learned posts are appreciated
