nice pics.

just curious - looks like you have 3 stack on top of each other here. How are you able to do that without damaging one or the other?

Hey buddy, glad you liked the pics!

So the Dogfighter on the bottom is fine there. The reason being is that the PA Bandit's landing gear conveniently snugs to the leading and trailing edge of the wing. This means the Bandit has to be put in a 45 degree angle which is perfect for the Addiction X as that has to go straight in and having the Bandit 45 degrees to the side of the Addiction X means the the Addiction X tail and Bandit tail don't touch. As for the Addiction X, it's resting on two side compartments at the side of the car. I put a glove under each wing so it's not resting on the vortex generators to make sure they don't bend! The landing gear on the Addiction X isn't touching the Bandit contrary to what the picture indicates. The middle seats are put down in the car to make room for the planes. The back seats have been removed all together And the two searbelts at the back stop the Addiction X slipping too far forward and the gap in the middle seats holds the tail from slipping back! So no planes are touching each other at all, and if they are, no great pressure is being put in them whatsoever!

WOW, that picture of my planes in the car has almost 150 views! I wonder why that has so much more than the others?

I hate prop adapters! This was the second battery after the maiden flight and I was lucky with no damage.

Flies like I thought it would and I like it but here are some final thoughts:

The quality of this kit was not what I expected (go ahead and flame me) but the support from Shaun and the gang was way more then I expected. The final thing that really me off was the control horn hole on the elevator wasn't cut properly causing the angle of the control rod to be way off. If I hadn't fixed it there would have been a lot of binding and probably a servo failure at some point. There just seemed to be something at every turn that made me work just a little harder to put this kit together.

Guys, do any of you have a clue as to why that picture of my plane in the car has 289 views? Where are they all coming from? Haha!

Maybe it's a puzzle, and curiosity killed the cat They're probably trying to figure out how you got three planes stacked up in there without any visibly damaging the other -- all done with no hidden wires nor special foam supports
