Say Hello to Red Tail No. 2
Hey guys I have had number 2 ready for a couple of weeks but I'm just now presenting her to you and I have been busy doing some mods along the way.
I have plans to go ahead with the eflite retracts as others have been doing and I have a vario prop to experiment with. I have also done the gear door sequencer on this one.

New paint scheme a little different from the first one. This time I painted the olive drab top and re painted the canopy to match. I also lowered the fuselage invasion stripe line.
I think I like it better than the first. I moved my yellow wing stripe to center wing also.
The F-18 just had to get into the picture! My CNC makes a great plane display good for something!
Notice the aluminum vent panel for the ESC it actually works for airflow from the front cowl pass through.
I'm not chancing another lost airplane so I have a CC120 HV ESC and CC 20 amp BEC installed. We need airflow through this and when you put the battery in it's blocked for passage through fuselage.
I just cut out the exsisting panel line that was there and fabricated my own plate using .020 aluminum then traced with a exacto then hot glued in place.
