I will see how the performance of my baby is and maybe one of your kits is in the future! They look really nice!
I cut my monoblockless blu-baby, all the way from cutting the paper plans, gluing them to the FFF, transferring the outlines with a magic marker, cutting with a #11 exacto knife, and peeling the skins off, all in the course of one soccer match during the Olympics this year. It's much easier than you think
And I routinely plow my monoblockless blu-baby into the ground doing stupid stunts way too low and it's hardly bruised at all. I've also plowed it into football uprights doing 'field goals', and to JimHSoars' point I've bent the landing gear wire till they almost look retracted
doing touch-and-gos (slam and stops), I use wheel collets from dubro, and the wheels have NEVER come off. It's my beater plane and I love it.
