My Top Flite Giant Scale Zero

This came in too gray for me. Researching its tail no. IHA-159, I found out the original plane belonged to the Iwakuni Air Group, and it was green and didn't have the curved paint scheme on the aft sides of the aircraft.

So I sanded the monokote and painted it Matte Hunter Green. Did some panel lines and rivets and sealed it with Matte Clear paint.

Got the temp sensor mounted on the motor heat sink. Tested it on flight today together with the 3-bladed config.

Everything checked good! Now I could have a beer !!

Here's the video of the ground checks
