Thanks Bazed!

This was my first full fuse build so I decided to keep it simple and not build the canards. At low speeds she handled fine, no loss in elevator.

My wing had a really hot ESC until I swapped it with a higher amp ESC. I suggest you replace it with a stronger ESC or use a smaller prop. Good luck!

I didn't have any Velcro and eventually the battery broke loose in the fuse causing a scary roll and I was forced to land.

Other than that incident she flew beautifully, with only a touch of up stick when inverted. Thanks for the plans!

$40 bucks for a PJ8. Jeez for a few bucks more you can get a ARF Rad Jet. And you don't even have to build it..
Just joking

I wonder if the flames will act as a KFm step. Some of them are pretty long though, so the overall chord might be longer than a proper KFm2 step at 50%.

Hello everyone, i spoke with Albert to see if it would be ok for me to build a few of these planes to benefit kids with cancer. He said YES and i am very grateful for that. I am doing this fundraiser for kids with cancer and will donate the funds to the hospital. I have been blessed since a few vendors have also stepped up to the plate and have donated. Here is what i have posted and oh yeah its called "Flying 2 Fight Cancer" F2FC
