A few weeks ago I picked up a BeachCraft at my new local hobby shop. Got it all put together with the electronics they recommended, but I am using a Hacker 40 amp ESC with a castle 10 amp BEC to be on the safe side. I am hoping to maiden this aircraft tomorrow, it would've happened today if it wasn't raining.

I plan to add the optional retracts later on and a v-tail after I see how it flies for the first time. It will also get a 7 channel receiver upgrade all of the channels on the 6 are full.

Also I recently joined S.N.H. flying Eagles for the summer as I am away from my normal flying fields, it is a wonderful place to fly and there's a nice place to drive my trucks close by.

So after the last funder n' lightening reached the end of it's servicible life I decided to build a new one. I built this one the same a last time but using the version 2 plans with the old style tail. I changed up the paint scheme from last time also. This one is black with red tips and white stripes on top and blue on the bottom. I decided to name this one also, Fury.
