It took about 1.5 hours to build this kit and I was really pleased with the way it went together and the results. I didn't have to force anything or stretch any wires or hammer anything in. All went according to the instructions. When you crank up the motors, this thing really wants to fly! We've got a couple feet of snow on the ground here so I'm going to have to check around my usual spots for a clear runway. I don't video maiden flights, but I should have some flying video of her soon.
