At last

Well, it's done and ready for maiden. It weighs in at 16 oz. on the button with a 3S 1300, at least twice as much as anything that size I've ever built. I said I wanted weight and I got it. Now I'll find out if it meets my goal.

The topside color scheme comes from a full scale Extra 300L that I got to fly a little bit recently. The Extra also had a purple component which I used on the bottom. I know it's not a candidate for Plane Beautiful, but I'm hoping it will be visible enough to these bad eyes.

Now to set up the TX for throws and rates. Hope to maiden it very soon. And despite hammydude's title, I'm under no illusion that it's crashproof.
