42" blunt nose wing, " FPV friendly.

well after a successful build with my 46". i decided to try a smaller, maybe lighter 42". the 46" already does 15min flight time on a 2200 3s. this is will be LED and will have basic 5.8ghz fpv equipment for practice. El diablito, a 32" was too tail heavy and currently redesigning plans for it.

pictures of the 46", shoe for reference. this originally had 2 1300mah lipos. 900mhz system was crap and removed it. just flying it for fun. big time dihedral as i built it but does well.



new one has added wood under lipo, plus more foam to reinforce it. should still be lighter than original. motor park 480 910kv-1100kv or similar w/ 9x6 sf prop. pics of build as it goes along. should finish body tonight.

What does "LED" stand for in " this is will be LED and..."?
