Latest Project: Avro Arrow
I finally decided I'd build a plane AND cover it. After doing some research, and weighing the balance between construction technique, cost, and size, I decided on the manzano laser (www.manzanolaser.com) Avro Arrow.
Construction for the most part was pretty straight forward. All the parts came laser cut, in a priority mail package. I spent about 5-7 nights after work for the construction phase, and another 2-3 for the covering. I just finished up installing the ESC, rx, and servos. All that is left is to decide on a motor, balance it and go fly. Ill report on the flight characteristics once the maiden is over.
As for the finish, I have enough time invested in it as is. I want to fly it before I spend any more on decals etc, but I do have plans for some canadian markings if all goes well.

It sure is, I just need to decide which motor Im going to use. Im thinking a little screamer park screamer or grayson hobbies motor.......
The laser cut parts made the construction really easy. Id only 1/2 built a guillows kit before, and this was way easier.
