Cool
My first foam built plane. What you think?

So this is my first plane i have ever built. It is a mini 3D edge 540. My friends own design. But I built it. These are just pictures of it without the radio gear. Which I am doing after work today. But anyways what do you all think?

I like it.. what is the wingspan and what electrics are you going to run in it? I like the reflective tape as well.

The wingspan is 22" long and I am using all the electronics out of a beast with the exception of the rudder servo. The rudder servo built onto the board went bad, so I made a plug and used the xport channel and used a small cheap servo. Seems to work just fine the trick was lining it up with the right pins. Also it was a pain since it was already on the plane lol.

Tried flying it the other night. It flew great until a gust if wind came up while I was upside down flying low to the ground... It caused it to nose in and crunched up the front a bit.. but just a minor repair when I get time will get it flying again!! I love the plane though! It flies extremely nice and is very aerobatic. Hovers pretty nicely too
