Custom Mini Ultra Stick

When I busted the fuselage on my E-flite ARF a few years ago I built a custom fuselage as a replacement. Actually, the design is based on flipping the original over to make the plane a low-wing, and building a turtle-deck/"canopy" to improve the looks. The greatest benefit is the comparatively huge battery hatch and freedom in battery placement with the new design.
I've just completed this third iteration with a custom wing based on the MUS airfoil and plan-form, but with hidden servos and d-cell leading edge. The vertical surfaces are custom copies too. The horizontal surfaces are all that remain of the original ARF.
The covering keeps the plane's original colors to pay homage to the ARF origins.
