Highly aerobatic 2 mm coro plane

hello,
tried to make a highly aerobatic plane using CORO, 2mm sheet from my own design/ ideas. Here is the spec.
WS= 35.5" w/o aelerons. Aelerons= 4"x 2"
Length = 40 Inch
Motor is TR 35-30C 1100 KV with 10x4.7 prop from united hobby. 30A esc, Gws rcvr and 9 gms servos X 4. 1800mAH 3cell Polymax.

AUW with Battery = 831 gms.

The wing was made with the usual bending but this time i made the bend length wise to get a smoother leading edge.
Maidened few days back. It flew really well with min trims. It was so stable and also aerobaitc too due to the large control surfaces.
I have recently changed it to D750 motor from UH, which gives more efficiency.
I will post some videos when i have sombody to take it.
here are some pictures.
best regards
ashta
