Done !

Not real proud of the covering - me and covering dont see eye to eye.

My Daughter was covering some books for school, with an African scene, and we though, hey why not put a panel on each wing - didnt come out too bad at all.

The Elevons and motor/prop cutout are done in red, as thats all you can see when flying directly away, so hpe it helps with visability, as thats the only prob with the white/black on my Lightning 36, it diasapears easily when flying directly away.

All up Weight 1697 grams , lets call it 1700 grams, or 60oz , still not sure about throwing this one, its alot of weight, and its also a large wing

Ended up balancing on CG (10 inches/ 254mm) with no extra lead, and with two 3S 2500 batts.

Has just on 1:1 thrust with the waypoint 3014-16T motor and 10 by 5 prop. on 4S (batts comming) thrust will increase to 2.4 kg (84 oz)


Now just the maiden to do......
