Have fun with the build(s) and please post a pic of the BLUE one if you can.

I'm curious to see what the blue really looks like, as it looks too "Girly" in the H/King photos

I post pictures later on. The blue color us much...much...much better in real.
The girly color at the picture is fully wrong impression

pics...
below

build was very easy, took 30 mins, and i am a slow builder. all in all it looks as I thought earlier today, one of the best quality builds I've had so far.... and I've bought a lot from HK ;-)

one recommendation for anyone thinking of getting this plane... subject to flight reports... just order it... its only a hundred bucks!

flight test tomorrow, if weather is OK - been raining a lot in Sydney at the moment..

for those waiting on blue plane pics, they'll have to wait till Sunday from me (hopefully someone else got a blue one today), because that plane went to a mate... SORRY ;-)

and by the way, the red is very good, its a strong vibrant red. and a great paint job

and the engine power felt great!!

Pictures

First pictures of the blue one.

Modifications:
- adding black paint to cockpit and motor section. Water based hobby paint.
- adding shrink tube to the push rods, to have less space

@PMRfly

According to the picture at HobbyCity (and info) the bay behind the motor (where also the ESC is placed) is for the battery.

But I could not test it. Because CG is important of course

I always like to add some scale details.
Plane looks great and if it flies like it looks...it will be cool.

With a bit of luck, it will fly this weekend.
Only need to see how it will fit with the battery and the CG.
I have 2200mAh packs and also 1800mAh
