Wow, some of the most beautiful scenery and flying combined that I think I've ever seen.

Great video Daniel, makes me want to build a new foamy. I think I'll get my 330 out of the box tonight.

Hey Tom (foamyflyerr), hard to believe that's the same plane I have (except I have the fusion version). WOW!

Did I miss something? It looks like DW doesn't do fusion versions anymore?

Hi Blu,

The fusion option is still available. Go to the 40-55inch kits menu. Then choose 40in. kits. Select a model type. Then on the right side of the screen, you'll see a drop down combo box called Fuselage Option where you can choose depron or EPP Fusion.

What a bummer my friend, I was really looking forward to our Sunday mini air show! I even got to looking over the Rare Bear with not much else to do. I have to paint or add some monokote color stripes for orientation. After the wife and I got home from shopping yesterday we took the Victory MC out for a ride which was fun. Hope to see ya the week after next, have a great time on your trip buddy!
Ps, get that Radian going, love watching you put her through her paces.

if no one has built a Raven kit, i'd highly recommend looking at one. The wing tips are really cool.

The builds are just a little bit different than on a 40 or 48.
But this thing is ultra cool. I can really tell how light it's going to be.

So you didn't use the carbon wing tip struts on the bottom side?
