Me too

To be honest until now I didnīt have the guts to fly her. 3.8 kgs take off weight is really a lot. I will do that when I feel comfortable with all my other jets.... and I still not sure how to set up the thrust vectoring. So still no maiden yet.

3.8??? that's gonna need a little speed! ;-)
I know what you mean, I built a fast boat and when I say fast I mean real fast.
When I finally put it on the water, I was shaking! Lol....

Your plane does look grate though...

My version has been ready to fly all summer. Somehow I didn't get time to fly anything this year. And I still don't think I'll finish the important projects before winter. I warned I was slow, as it was low priority.

Oh... itīs a twin 75mm, I blew up the plans to fit in two Wemo 609. Thatīs also the reason why it got heavier than planed (two 36mm Motors, bigger escīs and also a bigger battery...) thrust should be around 3,5 kg on 6s
