Here is how it comes out of the box.
Also pictured are the following items I purchased separately:
-Two Frio 10 brushless motors rated at 150 watts each, 1050 KV.
-Two Apollo 25A ESCs. ($54 combo for motor and ESC from Towerhobbies).
-5 Hobbico CS-12 sub-micro servos rated at 40 oz-in torque (plenty!)
-2 9x6 wood Zinger props (I used to fly nitro planes and like these props!)
-1 9x6 wood Zinger pusher prop.
-2 carbon fiber tubes.
-2 carbon fiber strips.

The heavy battery, slow charger, and crap spare props are the items in the bubble wrap. They came with the plane, and I will not be using them.

Not pictured:
Align 3 cell, 2100 mAh LiPo rated at 22C to power the motors.
6V NiMH receiver battery for the electronics.
(I disconnected the BECs on both ESCs since they can not work together)
