Sammy, I'm figuring this is EPO because it's strudier than the styrofoam packing in the box. I'm still waiting on the motor, ESC, and batteries. When it's done I'll get some pics and maybe a video up!!!

Good luck look forward to seeing how you decide to finish the electronics.
ryramZ, The ailerons are 11 3/4" long. I ordered this motor:

Feel free to post up some pics of just how it comes out of the box. I'd like to see what the foam looks like on these...

Here it is:




It's a little rough but I'm happy with it. They put carbon rods in the horizontal stab., elevator, and ailerons. There's a 1/2" x 1/8" plywood spar in the wing. It has the main gear and steerable tail wheel, pushrods, control horns, servo screws, servo horns,???. There's a tube of glue also. The instructions are a hoot, but easily understood. Here's a better link to it:

Yeah, they are stickers not waterslide like it says! I took mine off, but I found some silver chrome craft paint at wally world that matched pretty well!

Funny, I have this same plane - bought it from them in a black friday sale (a bit cheaper). Got the EPO Corsair as well. I have yet to put either together though - too many planes, not enough time.

There are number of EPO GuanLi planes that are similar. Here's a thread on them. It starts out about the RTF version but it's the same airframe. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...ght=at+6+texan Lots of discussion on brushless upgrades and other mods. worth a read.
