Most excellent! Can you tell us what kind of foam it's made out of?

Seems to be EPS just like the Euro & F18. Foam is thin on the intake ducts so she is definitely not a belly lander.

@v8truckin: Did you opt for a particular motor/fan package, or are you installing your own? I see RC-Castle offers counter-rotating fans as options, but they are on the spendy side. Do the stock fans that came with your kit counter-rotate, too?

I didnt opt for their motors. I am planning on using 2500kv cyclone power motors. Ill check on the fans being counter rotating. I believe all you have to do to make em counter rotate is flip flop the 2 of the motor leads...no, if the fans are counter rotating?

The fan would have to be a mirror of the other for it to counter rotate.
The motor setup you said would also be necessary to get the motor to counter rotate.

@v8truckin: If, as Maxthrottle points out, the fans are mirror images of each other, then yes, swapping 2 of the leads to the appropriate motor will get the fans to spin in the proper, opposite directions.

No vendor mentioned two versions!

fans are thin and there is rough edges on the blades. Will definitely need major balancing.

Seems that if you buy the PNP 3D sport version the motor is a lower kv & battery is a 6s. Standard version is higher kv with a 4s battery. Also the 3D version has vector & rudders where the standard version doesnt. Yellow & Grey scheme
