You might need antennas, but it depends where you buy the stuff from.

EconoKote. Nine bucks a roll and worth every penny

I'm happy with this one so far. Hopefully I got the incidence and firewall angle right the first time here; the airfoil has changed by a fraction so I may or may not be a little off. I've fought worse monsters than anything this one can throw at me (original version started out like evil with wings), but it'll just be nice if it flies right off the board.

Slipso maiden is happening soon. Might not be on video.

It doesn't really matter anyways, LOL just thought it was a bit funny. Here's my proposed FPV setup right now:

Plane: Crash Test Hobby Assassin (34'') EPP Flying Wing OR Hobbyking Teksumo EPP Wing 900mm (ARF)

Motor: Turnigy L2210-1650 Bell Style Motor (250w)

ESC: TURNIGY Plush 30amp Speed Controller

Servo (x2): D-MG16 Metal Gear 2.9kg/.08sec/18.8g

Propeller: JXF 7x6 / 178 x 152.5mm Poly Composite propeller

Plus a 3mm prop adapter and a ESC programming card. Crash Test Hobby recommends a 120-200w motor, so I picked a 250w one. I picked a larger ESC (30A) because I have a bad habit of flying at WOT for a while (hence the 250w motor, too). I also chose larger servos, they recommend 12-14g ones but I chose some super fast 18g metal geared ones. The battery is a little larger than recommended at 1800 mAH instead of 1300 mAH. However CTH did state on the site that even a 2200 mAH pack will do. I didn't want to go that huge though, the larger servos and ESC make up for the weight of a pack like that together with the bigger battery.

Radio gear and video transmission products are still undecided...

Albatross? Heck no, the prop is in the front! That's annoying for FPV in my opinion...

Dude the Albatross IS 48'' LOL...

Maybe something more like a Bixler, or a glider like that. Probably a better choice but I need it to be relatively small... maybe a quad would be better then LOL

Haha sorry man you still don't know what you're talking about LOL JK

Flying wings actually get tons of flight time - 30 minutes I could get out of a 34'' wing.
