Just finished up the Nutball kit from Budget RC. I've scratch built a couple of these in different sizes, but for the price, the kit is hard to beat. All the bevels are done for you and resulted in perfect dihedral joints. I particularly liked the way the fuselage/canopy/vertical stab are all one piece and insert from the bottom into slots in the wing.

Haven't had a chance to fly it yet, but I'm sure it will perform like all the others. It's 6.7oz, with 2 HS 55s, PH 10esc, 1500Kv Blue Wonder and a 2S 800mah pack.

Took longer to paint than to build.

Here's my latest, the Nifty designed by davereap and the plans are available in the scratchbuilt forum. Mine is 27 x 13.5 since I had a piece of 27" depron needing a home. Since some people mentioned a climb under power, I raised the thrustline slightly above the centerline. Mine flew immediately with no trim required, and no reflex or tendency to climb under power. Used the cheap Towerpro 2408-21 we're using for combat and a 3S 1000 Dualsky pack. This plane fly absolutely rock solid, both upright and inverted.
