Yah... since we've been at this since 2008, it is easy to forget. No matter what the secret was, however, the F3F community is in for a BIG reveal once this baby starts dominating the skies!

I think there are lots of good f3f planes available. It's more about the pilot and him flying a plane that is properly setup, making the right ballast choices, than the actual model of plane, in my opinion.
Knowing what a perfectionist Steve is, I'm sure it's very good, and also sure he's not satisfied with it (because he's over the top on perfection).
R,
Target

Picked up my Secret today!

Very nice fit and finish. Getting all the hardware together.
This will be all MKS hv6100's and Ds6125's on flaps
3rd bearing frames in the wing.

This should be a fun one, and well worth the wait!

I know the race is tomorrow, soooo it'll be an all nighter!



Yeah,.......right, I wish lol!!

I'll post pics as I make progress.

Good weekend to get some stuff done on the Secret!

I'm not the fastest guy when it comes to doing these installs, Just like a clean install! Got the tail linkage and servo's done.

Also built me a 2s 2500 round cell lipo

Wings are next!
