I opted to sort of keep the stock trim scheme, however I dressed it up with better and brighter paint, decals and some ultracote. This bad boy better not thunder in!!!!

What size of motor and fan unit are you going to put in it? Or are you just replacing the motor?

I think people are still flying them... they just don't need a lot of mods like many other EDFs so their tends to be less traffic on this thread. Probably should be considered a good thing :-)

Awesome bird for those people with a need for speed. I run mine with the stock fan and a Don's Wicked. She is good for about 110mph but her small size makes it look like she is doing 150mph. People at the field are always amazed when I bungie launch her and the start some high speed passes.

I still go mine.

Nearing 100 flights.

I just "whip it out" whenever I want to relax after flying my Rifles.

Good to see you still around Tim. Are you still designing for Hobbico?

Hi Sammy.

I don't really design much - some, but not much. Mostly taking already "designed" airframes to completion via testing, reports, instruction manual writing, etc.

But yes, I'm still in R&D if that's what you mean.
