Build went well and I learned alot along the way (mainly by doing it twice) and have had great fun with the finished product. Its powered with a RCer Warp 4, 50amp Hyperion ESC and 2200mah Lipo. This gives it quite a high wing loading but it as an absolute rocket ship. Its very unforgiving however and I might down size the set up at some stage to reduce the wing loading. Some pics below:
