I can't wait to get one of these kits. The videos really show what the plane can do.

Got my jet painted and nearly ready for flight. Decals go on tomorrow and servos need to be glued in. If weather cooperates a test flight will be in order.

Good luck on the maiden!

Never mind the rudders, flies great without them.

OK, so as some of you know, I'm having some heartburn with the current state of the 1806N motors, and the mfgr won't even email me back now.

So I got two of the Firepower 250 Sport motors from Jeff at Heads Up RC. They arrived today, and I will be testing one out hopefully tomorrow. If they work well, I will import these instead.

Here's a link to the motor at HURC:

6mm depron. I found some design master grey primer from michaels works fine no melting. Used two very thin coats.

Hooked up one of the Firepower 250 Sport motors today. On the bench it seems like it has very similar performance to the old 1806N. I have high hopes this motor will work as a replacement.

She flies like a dream.

Two flights today with mixed throttle and no complaints. Made me forget it was about 32 degrees and my hands were cold.

Inverted flying is great, loops great.

what a joy.

need more batteries now

Superinstaller,

I followed up on your recomendation for "Design Master" brand spray paint. In talking with the store clerk, it's supposed to be good for styrofoam/depron. Picked up a can to try it out myself. Thanks!
