Let the Build begin I took tons of Pictures of Course.
Ok so here is my review of the plane
1. quality of Kit 5 stars (techones quality is 2nd to none and you get a motor and esc with this one)
2. Build this plane is built using contact cement and hot glue easy and straight forward again 5 stars
3. flying the information says you will be hovering in your kitchen well as this is true this plane comes with a mini brushless motor that is spinning a 5030 prop at high RPM so the plane is a rocket when it jumps out of a hover this could result in a real bad ugly crash with broken parts if you try to do a hover in a small area.
I would say this plane is perfect for a flying area the space of a tennis court or you backyard you will need a space of around 30 x 30 if you watch the video below the plane is quit fast for how small it is and is not a real slow 3D plane. it will hover and stuff but coming out of a hover you have to be quick on the sticks. so for flying and performance I give it 2 1/2 stars.
Im going to see if I can find a micro motor that will spin a 5030 prop at lower kv this should help the the plane.

Just got back from Flying the battery packs I'm using are only 7.4 volt 100mah (15c) and they are only good for about 3 minutes that being said (twitchy and touchy I guess I have to dial in some expo on this one) Video coming later today got to go to work at my real job.

I'm building this plane.
I bought the same servos.
Since I own a Turnigy 9x transmitter, I'm using a lightened HK-T6a receiver, without case and after cutting pins it's 5.4 grams.
I soldered esc and servo wires below the board.
Esc and motor are working well, but servos don't move, and I cannot figure out why.
Maybe wires position is different in these servos?
