01 Phoenix Tucano - Unboxing and Parts Overview

In this video, I show you my latest build: the Phoenix Tucano from Tower Hobbies. This is my first "real" plane build (meaning not foam) and I am pretty thrilled to get started. And wow...is this a beautiful plane!

I show you what's in the box, and what electronics I am putting into it. Here's what I have so far, with Tower Hobbies part numbers for your reference.

LXBGZU Phoenix Models Tucano GP/EP ARF 61.4"
LXRDH3 Great Planes Silver Series 60A Brushless ESC
LXLWV6 Great Planes Rimfire .46 42-60-800 Outrunner Brushless
LXZK99 APC 12x8 Thin Electric Propeller
LXEAYP FlightPower LiPo FP30 4S 14.8V 4350mAh 30C
LXVW07 X 4 Futaba S3004 Standard Ball Bearing Servo
LXDPFP Tactic TR625 6-Channel 2.4GHz SLT Rx
LXDGLS Tactic Servo Extension 6" Futaba J
LXDGME Tactic Y-Harness 20" Futaba J

I still need a battery, and I am trying to decide if I want to run an external BEC for the servos, or if I just want to run a receiver pack. I'll decide that as I go, but right now I am leaning towards a BEC.

Thanks for watching!
