F-22 Raptor in - You guessed it- "Five Easy Pieces"

With Tornadoes wiping an entire town off the map in Indiana i stayed inside and built an F-22 in five easy pieces.
First a diagram from the "Virtual Aircraft Museum".
Then plot on 30x40 paper.
Glue onto foam-core board to make the template.
Then render the plane in Blue-Core.
FEP / F-22 is 42" long with a 28" KFm4 wingspan.
2200kv motor spinning a 6x4 prop.
1600mah Li-Po.
Three channel set-up with elevons.

Well we've gone from level 4 tornados to snow in one day.
That's Indiana for ya. Henryville a small town two hours south of here was pretty much leveled and blown away.
Still too windy here for a maiden attempt.
Monday is predicted to bring calmer skies.

I've never built a plane from scratch. Would you mind showing a few more details like engine mounting and control surfaces are set up? Would this be a good starter project?

Thanks

Well I could but I would only be poorly duplicating the already fine efforts of Scott Lott and Dave Powers at RCPOWERS>COM.
They have great build threads that illustrate motor mounts and and control surfaces, etc.
My Five Easy Piece methodology is about as simple as it gets so yes my J-20 and F-22 would be good starter planes. They are easy to build and set-up and very stable in the air.
I have a couple of build videos which cover my 'Five Easy Piece" methodology and I build my Five Easy Piece F-14 TOMCAT on camera (with some editing to save time ) which also illustrates my "Elevons-on-a-Stick" control surface attachment for my F-14, F-15 and soon to be rendered F-18.
These vids are on my you tube channel at "bobdaeronort"
