Ready for Maiden

Well, I finally got it finished and ready to maiden. My AUW is 6 pounds 1.5 ounces. I have an E-Flite Power 32 with a Turnigy 60 amp ESC with 4S 4000 mah batteries turning an 11x7 prop. Watt meter say I'm pulling 56 amps and putting out 570 watts. Should be enough to fly it fairly well. There won't be any hovering with it though! On a side note, there is no way in the world that this model can be built by a normal human in 4 to 6 hours as the manual says. It is an easy build but there is a lot time required doing all the drilling and mounting. It is a gorgeous airplane and I am excited about getting it in the air. Well worth the money as far as how strong and well built it is. Hopefully it flies as good as it looks!
