So I decided to build my next plane for my hangar after I toasted another one. After trying to unsucessfully fly my flat-out extra 300; I managed to wreck it again and decided to scrap it and build something new.
So I was looking through the plans here on RC Groups and found the Mo-109. It's a modified Me-109 built like the blu-baby. I had help from on of my friends and we stayed up until about 3:30 in the morning trying to finish this thing. We managed to finish it the next morning. Took it out the field later that morning and it flew really stable and very scale-like. I decided after that I flew it that I would put a bigger ESC on it and add an air scoop on the side of the fuselage to help cool it.
I'm running a headsuprc sport 400 with an 8x4 propeller on a castle thunderbird 36 ESC. Not sure on the battery yet. I'm hoping to prop up to a 9 or 10 inch propeller. Got the usual rudder, elevator, and ailerons.
Got it all painted later in the day, and I hope to have a good day of flying tomorrow. Maybe even have a dog-fight with my friend that help me build it with his texan.
