With Scott and Ben and team working their magic, you know it will fly great right out of the box.

NO WORRIES!!!

1)By the time Tiny comes around I bet there will be several different planes and color schemes available.

2)Because Scott liked it best that way.

If you prefer a single aileron servo, simply mount the two servos on the bottom and reverse the control horns. It would absolutely be up to you in that regard.

FWIW, yes, weight and simplicity. Again, either will absolutely be an option for most builders/pilots.

Dont know what radio system Scott uses but the one photed (Futaba R6004FF) is only a 4channel reciever. I dont know what Spectrum & Hitec offer in the sub 5g range but that will limit you. Granted you can always use a Y harness

I removed my comment out of respect for 3DHS as I love their products, even if it's a plane similar in design to a few that many of us already fly. No offence to anyone though! I love the paint scheme & upgrades. Looks amazing.

At any rate, many of you will love this bird. Keep it light though. I've found even 5g added weight is hugely noticable. The thing 3D's amazingly well, and is perfect for indoor and outdoor flying with a simple pack change-out.

If you've never done glue hinges, youtube Welder's hinge. I also can't more highly recommend Welder's glue for building these planes. Strength & flexibility all in one package.
