Started building mine last night, it goes together really easily. I really love the indexing cutouts that both keep everything aligned and don't let you put anything together backwards. Very nice touch!

I'm running a slightly different set-up because it's what I have:

Hacker A10-13L w/ 8043
ZTW 12 A ESC
Hitec HS-65 on ailerons
Hitec 5045 on elevator and rudder
3S 350 mah and 450 mah Sky LiPo and Gens Ace packs

On this size plane I won't be using 3S any more, and here's why: it's difficult to find the right size 3S packs. To get the same weight as the recommended 2S packs, you need about 3S 300-350. These are more expensive than 2S 450 (there are lots of those on the market) and about the only high-C ones available are Thunder Power and they are very expensive.

My next RCF/Twisted plane will get the recommended power system for sure. The Twisted 2204-1800 is a very impressive little motor!
