* Pre-installed 45A ESC
* Wingspan: 34 1/2 inches
* Length: 34 2/4 inches

Yup, we're a go for Saturday! Last thing todo is check the CG with the TP 4s pack in it.

That silver and red would look awesome against a nice blue sky. Lots of nice paint jobs on these foamys now-a-days.

I posted up some pics and a little summary of my thoughts so far from the first 2 flights over the the foamy edf forum, but I'll post them here too

Jon and I got mine out to the field for a maiden flight on Saturday. I got 2 flights on it, and I've got to say I'm pretty impressed with it. The 80mm fan has a unique sound to it ..... It seems to me instead of hearing the usual whine of the high rpm 70mm setups, you hear more of the air moving out the exhaust pipe as with 90mm setups.

Not ultra fast, but super stable as I expected. It likes to come in under a bit of power, say 1/8th throttle or so. I did find myself trying to correct for the crosswind with a rudder, thats the only thing I've found missing so far on this plane

Thanks for the pics Jon!
