I bought this airframe only from a buddy of, he was running a DA 85 on it. I took it over and put a Scorpion 5545-150, CC 110HV, 25x12.5 APCE. The AUW is 18.5 lbs and the power is a perfect match. Hovers are just under 1/2 throttle. EF sure got this nailed, it flies awesome.

I've always wanted a Mustang and this one was a good choice. Very true flying plane.

It comes in at 9.75lbs running a 6s set up. Motor is a Reaper GR60XL, Castle Ice 100, turning a 16x10 APCE. Making 1800 watts @ 80 amps

I upgraded to the Robart mch. retracts with their struts as well. Doing that much improved the ground handling, but as the case with most stangs , it still leaves a lot to be desired.

Top speed is 70-75 mph flat and level, but out of good dive, lets just say it attracts alot of atention.

Hello everyone thought it might be cool to do a build of a Splash 3D in my blog. I use medium and thick ca with kicker and can easily frame one up in a nice evenings build. These's are pis from the prototype kit, there have been several improvements made to the finished product that I sell.

Here's a link to the Splash info thread which tells how to you how to get one. Along with some videos. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=455802
