Maidened mine this New Year's eve. She flew well and landed in one piece.

While she is all that's been said & more, there are a few minuses:
1) The two servos for elevator (2x pushrod) & Rudder/Tailwheel steering do not have enough torque. Mine jitters. Especially the servo for elevators, they do not center. I've swapped them out for MG servos from HK. Worked slightly better (greater torque) but the elevator still does not center completely. With higher torque servos, the servo mount plates starts to flex (some kind of plastic). They should have use plywood. Oh well. I'm still working on a better solution.

2) I ROG on paved road (bitumen). She bounced around quite a bit. My friends commented its due to the tires (hard) & no suspension on the LGs.

Nevertheless, I still think she is a winner! Very scale flights on Rhino 3S 2200mah 30C & drawing a max 29.5Amps at full throttle. I only reached 3/4 throttle for takeoff & cruise around at 1/2 throttle. Now, if only I can find a good solution to (1) above, this would be the perfect warbird, looks good, flies well & the envy of all your flying buddies.
