Here it is from another angle, As you can notice the polyurathane glue overfoamed a bit, this is my first time building a Foamy with Polyu glue, and my 2nd foamy i've ever built, So im still learning to control the Poly glue.

So forgive the sloppyness, im going to clean it up some, but it sort of acts as tri stock and makes the wing-fuse joint real strong!

I still have to airbrush it, so its all white for now.

Well its all RTF, the RTF weight is 16oz ( I know its heavy) with a 3S2P 2400mAh pack ( Had to use it instead of the thunderpower, for balance, I will modify plans to fix balance) Home made wheelpants, landing gear , 2x2" Landing gear mounting light ply plate, painted on scheme, (1) servo Per aileron, and the B20 15L.

Im waiting for the wind to die down, to maiden it, wind's are gusting at about 25mph right now.

Just flew it, needless to say TOO WINDY.

Took off in about 3 feet and flipped verticle, had to fight it to keep it level, it feels like it will be a very good plane though. Landed it with no damage.

I will get a BETTER flight report when the wind dies down!

Got some more flights on it.

The 30MPH wind is warping the wing, so its jumping up and down.

I busted my pretty wheelpants on the last landing, the wind made it yaw and it slide sideways, folded the gear up, and tore the wheelpants off, Oh well I'll make more!
