I went with ply/balsa/ply composite for the turtle deck and battery tray, instead of the CF plates of the first version.
I saved some weight by pulling out the nose weights and changing out the heavy metal control rods to the empennage.

My 0 v.2 will have flaps, retracts, LEDs and upgraded servos . The MPI retracts have a max load rating of 350g so I'll have to perform a few more weight saving refinements on that one.

Cheers!

Wow, that's ambitious with such a small plane. Can't wait to see the results, best of luck on the mods!

Great plane

I've said this before but it's worth repeating. Once you get this plane dialed in you'll be hard-pressed to find another plane in this size class that flies as sweet! The zero tracks so quiet and smooth it's amazing. I leave her at home sometimes because I don't want to tire of her someday. But that's the only reason. And when I do take her out, the smile returns with the first dive into low pass and climb out

All stock but I'm using the 3S eflite 450 30C battery.
