Va Models Loop

Hello everyone I recently recieved a VA models Loop. I have heard great things about these planes and heard they are very forgiviving and floaty planes which make them perfect for 3D and even sport flying. the build was very simple to do with no problems at all. I like how VA uses a lot of wood to stifen the model up. also really like that this plane is a full fuse plane makeing it fly a lot better than your standard foamies. These planes also make great practice planes for you that own big gassers and dont want to go out and practice new moves on the expensive planes this makes a great practice machine. being made out of EPP foam makes it VERY VERY durable. These planes are offered in various combos i happen to get the one with everything except prop,battery,and radio. I did a pretty detailed build threat on this plane and have not included all the detailed step by step pics just to not bore you guys to much but if you have any questions or what to see somethig in a little more detail i probably have the pictures and can post them up I havent flown the plane yet but expect to have her flying tomorrow. I want to give a big THANK YOU to EPPHOBBY as well as GR8SKYHOBBY for sending me this beautiful model

Step 52. Clever way to mount the tail gear by embeding it into the rudder itself. This one looks cool but bigger than my Katana. Should i go smaller or bigger now....lol

I am sure that this is the lightest 48" epp full fuse plane out there, at least for the moment. Most other 48" epp planes weight about 200 g heavier than Loop
