in that second flight you can see i almost tip the wing but turned into it and saved it...what are you using to connect your nose gear to steering servo?

Parts are starting to roll in, just need one more package from hobby king.

My intention is to put in a ChangeSun 10 70mm fan with a HK 2800kv motor, with LED afterburners and variable exhaust nozzles into this plane. Be playing in my dad's workshop this week drinking some beer, scratching my head, and hopefully coming up with some working proof of concepts.

Can anyone tell me if the KIT version with fixed landing gear is the same airframe as the one with metal retracts? Also does the kit version come with something to at least cover up the front landing gear area like a door that just gets glued in? Please help... would like to know for sure before i buy. Thanks, Jeff

It is the same airframe, I bought the ARF with out retracts. Has empty cavities where the retracts go and included gear doors. I belly land so put on the gear doors, the only opening left is where the main wheels go.

do you have the L2855? I have that motor but the 2100kv rating. I have it in the fan already. I am gonna save it for a diff plane though....at least for now. This plane sounds better and has better performance than i thought it would going in to. I wanted to get another one of these and get the red diamond or jolly rogers, then make that one with all the armament and THEN use the CS. That way it will have more power to equal out more drag.
