I made another order to hobbyking today, to get the last few EDFs and ESCs, some wires and other accessories, hopefully this time it'll be enough to finish the plane

I should be recieving that order soon, but in the meantime, I'm redrawing the whole fuselage in autocad to be lasercut for a more light, scale look.

Allrighty, so I got everything today, all nice and packaged, so the first thing I decided to do was charge my depleted lipos with the new charger. One flat out refused to charge, getting a "low voltage" alarm, and the other one, after two hours charging, said it was done and could only turn one of my fans to its potential ( the other one just whirled around a bit). Could this be a problem with my charger or my lipos, or just something else? I'm really confused here, but other than that, everything's good.

I assembled all the electronics and they all work to the best of my knowlege, but I am scared sh$#less by those motors, and I will not really test them again until I have them properlly mounted.

This whole designing thing is hard and time consuming.
