Wife likes purple, wife gets a purple FunJet (her paint scheme, my painting). It's a happy tradeoff, I get a new plane and she's happy that it's purple, so no complaints about having a new plane!

Unpainted the plane came in at 15.9 ounces AUW and flew beautifully right "out of the box" after a one-night build (9 p.m. to 4 a.m.). Battery died and had to bring her in.

Painted her now and she's 19 ounces (just a few coats too many...) and she doesn't fly as well. Of course, flying with 18 mph steady and gusts up to 40mph didn't help any, but after working for hours on it, I wanted to get out (did some damage on that last landing though... )

It gets dark so early, but it's been warm this year, so it's been nice to go out. I have LEDs set up on my EasyStar so I can squeeze the most out of the day. They work great!

The Baby is a fun little plane, though I've been getting some glitchiness. May switch over to Spektrum and see if/how that helps.

The EasyGlider was supposed to get painted purple and yellow, but I ended up liking it white, so white it stays!
