Windrider A380

Yes, mine is still servicable.

Folk keep trying to show off with their new Hobbyking version, and then I impress them with my grown up model.

I have purchased one of these from Windrider and will receive it this week, the build will include EDF's, flaps, retracts and vinyl and will be flown from a grass strip

Does anyone have an all up weight with EDF's and retracts added, also any suggestion on motor choice would be appreciated

Ben -E that first pic looks great

Wow -- ordered this Friday and it turns up in the post today Wednesday from Hong Kong, thanks Ming for the quick post

I am going to make this with a one piece removable wing like my other airliners, 4 edf's, add full length CF spares, fowler flap's, retracts, light's and vinyl, I am not sure 4 50mm edf's will get it off grass I have no experience with these --something to think about

After looking back through the posts and video's I thought I would lift up the nacelles for more ground clearance for when the under carriage are added as they seem a little low, I took off 18mm 3/4'' off the top of the pylons keeping the same profile and scribed in the front section so now the pylon meets the center of the wing, I have done this to help with those 'not so good' landings
