Hi Blitzu,

Thanks. Top and bottom have good contrast. I am now using a very similar Fluro Orange on the top of some current aircraft.

Sooo.......they even make it in my colour scheme

This thread is getting too dangerous.

I quite like the look of that hot neon pink/blk or theres a real nice bright yellow/blk.
What i would recomend is a white fuse(i forgot and wasnt to fussed,just happy to have the colour i wanted),i think it wud be mre visible at distance in the sky...but we shall see in 5 wks

blitzu - lay off the beers when you start building man ! lol
My build is finished, finally.
14X14.5 and then 14X16.
14X14.5 pulls 90A static on 4S with the Strecker.
+-1400W
Im going away hopefully tomorrow so maiden will have to wait until I get back.
Voodoo - my CG is at 50mm, IIRC its supposed to be at 45mm - can I fly it like this or do you think I should add tail weight ?

I might be missing something seeing how I have not had my Irish coffee yet,but isn't 50mm from the leading edge tail heavy compaired to 45mm ?

The black fuse shows up much better in the sky then white,at least for me.

Does the nose of the swist call for a 30mm spinner?

If so, is there a good one that will fit a 5mm motor shaft?

I glued on the stab first, then drilled two holes down center for two 2mm carbon rod, drilled the fin, then glued it all together.
