took longer to find the camera then it did to cut I make this with a 1/4 bit cause thats all I had that will work on foam the foam is easy to sand so I will go cut the other half glue them then sand them down accoring to vetric aspire the cut time is 10.14 seconds

it is small 11" it is for my parkzone brick my motor fried last night though so whats a no go till monday

I made a mistake on the fuse so I dat to recut but all in all it only took 40 min to cut recut sand and glue

hobby king sent me the wrong motor props so I can not even go brushless on the DSM2 6-channel Ultra Receiver but monday I hope to get the replacement motor have some vids of her flying

I have a question if the fuse is 11" what should the wing size be is there a proper ratio or just what ever I want?

I had thought this one would be about 20 to 30 inches long.
