3D Hobby Shop 55" Katana LIVE Build Log
In one of my phone conversations with Ben at 3DHobbyShop, while we were discussing some more wacky power system thoughts, he managed to twist my arm and convince me to take early delivery of my 55" Katana. I decided to take one for the team, and will be presenting a detailed build thread here. There's no manual as a result of the early delivery, so this thread may differ from the manual a bit.
Power is going to be a CSRC prototype system, and it will be a bit on the wild side - more on that later!
EDIT: Here are the items I'm going to be running in the power system:
Prototype CSRC E60
CSRC Z-80HV ESC
9S 1P CSRC 2100mAh (3 3S packs in series)

This will be a "live" build thread - I'll be working through the night, and will post photos and comments as each step gets completed. So toss some popcorn in the microwave, hit the subscribe button, and stay up as long as you can. I expect this will involve some burning of the midnight oil, but that's become a sort of ritual with me for any new plane anyway.
As usual, the plane arrived triple

Anyway, let's start things off with a couple of kit pictures:
