Boy I'm glad I got into building when I started in this hobby, or I probably would have got a credit card for all these new ARFs, and have the Federal Government coming after me by now.
There are some folks who literally have to get almost every nice new ARF that comes out. I imagine it could get pretty addictive. I solved the problem by not allowing them in my hangar, but still have a few that made it in under the "grandfathers clause".

My friend just picked up one of these. Great airplane- I can vouch for the quality and durability of this one. His is set up by-the-book with the 480, and it is very aerobatic, with a remarkably clean knife edge. Its now on a scratchbuilt set of 27" floats that are to be tested soon.

Battery tray + power

I made a guide for my Common Sense 3-cell packs to hold the battery from sliding around. It makes the velcro strap much easier to use and you don't have to wrench it tight. I did have to make a cut out in the magnet cross piece to clear the pack as it goes in. I may have the cowling on a little further back than intended as well. Good flyer once I straightened out the left wing panel. The first flight took full right trim to get level flight and I found the outer left panel had a twist in it putting the leading edge down and the trailing edge up. Fun on the snow too. There's even a movie! E-Flite 450 with an APC 10 x7E and 3-cell pack.
