Just maidened the plane yesterday.... flys straight & true, good speed with the stryker stock setup, and slowed down really well for a soft belly landing. I'm very happy with the outcome. Love this hobby

After many successful flights, I decided to go ahead and make some improvements.
Moved all servo's & control hardware to inside the fuselage, removed rudder completely but reworked the vertical to be more sleek.
Gained a bit of speed, and more importantly better handling.
Next step is to do some fill work and paint, but I may not bother with this ship. No free time anymore.
