1:24 scale DVa Albatros - non ar6400

been wanting one of these for a while. so i settled on a 24 scale albatros. puts the ws about 12 inch mark.
gear is hk5320 servos, and a dt reciever. right now im tossing the idea of a 3.1g bl motor, or a pz p51 motor.
in hoping to make this fit in a small box for transport.

more to come.

going for a simple and fast build. a lot more wood than needed, but the way i fly (into things) it should help.
paid for EMS shipping from china, but i want to finished this by the end of the week. so i may end up going with brushed motor/gearbox.

bare: those look cool!

got the motor installed. went with the pz motor, even tho it weighs in at 8 grams.

edit: i put foam wings on it, but it seem like a sin to mix the with the balsa frame. so i am making new wings out of balsa. this is not going to be a light model.if my ap-03 gets here, i will ditch the brushed motor and install the BL one.
