Great.
I need to do some more tweaking and testing before I can publish a plan.
What I will do is a PDF were you have the patterns to build either v1 or v2 Raptors.

I didn't like the way the fuse pieces that run back through the nacelle terminated on the first go around so I tapered and pinched them together behind the motor mount. I want to see if this will improve the air flow to the prop when i get a chance to fly her next.

Oh, well, let's see.
They all have pretty good 1/3 throttle flight characteristics and I usually fly at 1/2.
My Su-47 is probably the most solid in the air.
The Arrow is six feet long and flies slow and steady for a delta canard. She'll do aerobatics if you keep her high enough to recover cause won't turn on a dime she needs a quarter.
Here's the link to her maiden flight.

Hey, I haven't found any references in here that tell me what size board you are using. Is it 6mm? I screwed up and bought an 8'x4' board that is 3/4" thick... I have no idea what I was thinking when I bought it.......
