Yippee!
Sharing pics of my first wing,(Overlord)

Been building on it for a month or so.Got most of my build info from the Unicorn website. Much more detailed than what comes with the Overlord.
Flew it for the first time yeterday. Nice a calm weather. After a few test glides I hit the throttle and a we went! Flew great but seemed a little underpower,even with the Zagi timed and balanced 400 brushed motor.
Using Maxamps 1800mah 4/5A packs. I have a few cycles on them. Hope to get more out of them after a couple of cycles.
Balanced at about 7-3/4" for now. Will be moving back towards 8" next time I take here out.AUW is 27-3/4oz at this point. Carrying 35 cents on each wing tip to balance at 8" for next flights. I built her strong (heavy) since it was my first wing. Been flying glider for years. Wings are a whole different ball game! But what a lot of fun!!

Lemme know what you think of my build.
