HK Hummer EPP 3D build log

After getting $80 in HK credit, I was set on a new aircraft. I purchased the Bonsai a few weeks ago, and I love it, I. Still trying to get it down pat, but these small wings are a bit tough to fly(for me at least). I love buying kits, and especially EPP(very hard to destroy!), so naturally selecting the power train and components is a passion in itself! So I picked the TGY 2217 16turn 1050 KV Aerodrive, a 20 amp HK with 3A UBEC ( this is the same as a TGY plush), 3 cell LIPOs @1000mah, 1300mah, 1800mah, and 2200mah all 25c, Corona 929 12.5g MG servos, with a FrSky V8R4-ii RX, I haven't selected what prop I'm going to use. I'm very excited about this build, and plane! I'm totally hooked on EPP since they crash, and don't get damaged! I was good with HH C-Ray a small pusher wing, but that was super easy to fly, but couldn't withstand cashes. I recommend EPP for new people in the hobby, and for folks who want to tech themselves. UV DAMAGES EPP, SO ITS A VERY GOOD IDEA TO USE HOT GLUE FOR EXTRA DURABILITY, AS WELL AS SILICONE OR SHOEGOOP; THIS IS LIKE A MOISTURIZING SUCNSCREEN, it blocks uv and keeps thee EPP in a forgiving condition. When everything arrives, I will document,mAnd post pics, and more in this thread. I'm also building a fully custom Durafly Zephyr that will be unreal!! Check it out in EDF FOAMIES! Thanks, any, and all tips are appreciated.
