Ambino your batteries are too small in capacity. What is your build stage?

Here is mine after about 6 months. Still not finished with the paint work or final details.

Hey Brett1984- thanks for providing the plans. If it wasn't for your plans i would've build an F16 or somethin'. I will fly her this weekend and post the video soon- (cross your fingers, there is no crash ) She's flown twice already, first time with rear prop, second time with 2x fans. This time its the real deal with full weight.

I thought you said that you didn't want to do another scratch build after this one? Or was that someone else I'm thinking of?

BTW, were you using the flaps for landing? In the video, it looked like it came in quite fast. Did it just seem that way on the video? Regardless, it looked awesome.

No Flaps, she came in fast!!!
I will try flaps after getting comfortable with the plane.
