Who are you and what have you done with Lockey and his complex builds?!?
Seriously tho, looks like a winner. Will it be water-capable as well?

Thanks guys .. thought it was time I did an easy one should be able to build this one in a couple or 3 evenings

Didn't give this a thought BUT, I have no doubt (if it flies good) that it could be made to ... all it would need really is a step ... I guess ??

By the way, do you prefer the squarer version or the more rounded version?

Which one flies better? Rounded gets my vote for appearance.

Spent a few hours today and almost finished ... this is a very quick build ...

Radio gear is in and working ... another couple of hours shooud see her ready for maiden

Just coloured packaging tape this time

Weight without battery is just under 400 grams, I will be using a ZIPPY Compact 1500mAh 3S 25C Lipo Pack and this weighs about 120 grams so all up I should be under 550 grams (19.4 ounces) I am happy with that weight

Thanks Goly ... apart from the fact I forgot to add on the elevons before, here is the comparison (with elevons)

Seems I am about 20 mm out ... although that is showing at 20% and I guess thats pretty conservative eh
