Ok, build is now done.

APC 8 x 3.8 SF prop
Berg 4
CSRC 8C 2s 800mAh lipo
2 eSky servos
Prop saver
0572 size O-Ring
CF rod
Allerc wood struts (painted with sharpie and some CF strips on those)
Home made motor mount

232g with no lipo - all up weight.
6.0-6.3A @45W WOT


My concern is that my prop almost touches the ground while my plan is just sitting there. I could get bigger wheels I guess. My motor sits a bit lower and points down vs the stock setup..

I went through all the pictures you guys did and attempted to fix the weak spots. Also stole some good ideas from others. Sorry, didn't take names.. but thanks!

I pretty much treated this build like a slowstick as far as making the hinges for the RUD and EL. Tape for dihedral etc.

Mine is no where as sexy looking as many of yours, but she is trimmed out and should fly. Yes, the cowl was white now spray canned with blue. I really hate building those stupid canopies.. . Also, the bottom wing wont fit up into the fuse with the space they give you.. but nothing a file can't handle.
Now I will go and do stickers ( ! ) and get some glow action.. I hope..
