Don't let others colorful designs take away from yours. Keep it simple and fly it. The rest usually end up crashing and then complain about all of the hours they spent to make it look pretty.

By the way. That heavy duty box for you ground station looks like a case for an old industrial Allen Bradley computer that I used at work many years ago. Great idea.

Cheers dude, glad you like. It took 10 minutes to make my stock ZII look like that. Gotta say yours looks like a really good clean & solid build! Have you flown it yet?

Keeping mine simple too! That design is just some sticky carbon film & some brand stickers & that's it, no fancy bits no hours & hours of preening just cut - stick - done. Didn't want to spend so long making it look pretty i dont want to fly it!
