That MF looks great, nice bright color as well, it ought to stand out from the crowd
Looking forward to seeing an even more powerful Zagi Tommy!

I finally completed my projects for the week. I got the Spitfire done and changed out the motor on the Zero. I had ordered a 350C motor for the Spit (came with a 300C) but forgot about it and put the stock motor in. Once it's in, it's in It would take cutting the styrofoam around the nose to get it off , You have to mount the motor before putting the fuse halves together. Not wanting to let the 350C sit around I put it in my Zero. It should go pretty good now. I tested it in my basement and it pulls! Might even be able to launch it by holding the plane underhand and giving it a gentle fling. My weight is 9.4 oz (w/o the TP 2S Prolite 1320 I have on order). The Spit came in at 11.6 oz's (w/o battery). Hopefully it will still be a decent performer with the stock 300C motor.
I was hoping my two new lipos would show up Friday. Hopefully they will arrive today so that I can fly something besides the ES on Sunday.

Here's my "Axis -vs- Allies" pic:

Finished Spitfire Pics: Not sure how the bottom "oil coolers" will hold up under landing but they look neat IMO. I did add some FFF supports inside them to hopefully sturdy them up a bit. I wasn't about the put the goofy laning gear GWS provides on them
