The planes that just wont get along!

I have had two planes sitting on the shelf (seperate shelves) for nearly 2 years awaiting their turn on the building table. Well, FINALLY I busted out the 42" Ohio Combat Sledgehammer and the 40" Ritewing Demon and got to work.

Normally, building two similar planes at the same time is no problem. However, these two have "history". They just cant seem to get along with eachother. Every time I put them next to eachother on the table they argue and bicker back and forth about who is faster, who is stronger or who is this or that. So, after numerous times having to seperate them and smack them on the noses with a hot covering iron they are FINALLY getting along better.

Both planes have "reccomended build techniques". I said, screw that and I am building them both identically and Im doing it "Laines way". Basically Im using little bits from each method plus some of my own. Doing this keeps them "equal-ish" and makes it much faster and easier for me.

Both planes will run on 3900 kv Neu motors, Castle Phoenix 80 ESC's 3S lipos and AR 500 RX's.

I am now to the point where the electronics are installed and I have started covering the planes. So, without further blabbering about this and that, here is a picture of the bottom of both of the wings. Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce, my O.C. Sledgehammer and my R.W. Demon.

(Bottom of the Demon is black, bottom of the Sledge is orange)

I bet the color scheme will be really confusing flying one then the other

"hmmmm, which one am I flying, Sledge or Demon, is it inverted or right side up"

looks really good
