My little extra

This little model started life as a profile model I found originally on the internet but it was not a success , after it spent 23 months sitting in the garage.
I decided to put a full fuselage and a kfm wing section I made my own canopy by pulling a lemonade bottle over a plug and fitted a 2812 motor and a 3s 1000 lipo
the worst bit was installing the esc above the battery in the nose .4 servos completed the model and I fitted it with 2" wheels .
What a difference its now a treat to fly and will perform aerobatics but not 3d although it will prop hang . The bigger wheels allow it to take off from grass .
Im glad I didn't scrap it .The model is covered in sign vinyl and weighs 550 gms giving it a 12oz/sqft wing loading.
