X-Flik
Unknown brand 30A ESC
Unknown brand EDF
Turnigy 2200mAh 30-40C 3S Lipo
Hobby City clone AR6100 2.4G Rx
2 X Hextronik HX5010 twin bearing standard servos.

The Flik's been hanging on the wall unflown for ages, and I had the EDF and ESC from another project so I thought I'd combine them. The only trouble was I'd have to add a heap of ballast to get the original Flik to balance with the EDF hanging out the back, so I extended the fuselage instead. Now I can just push the LiPo forward until I get the balance right. I'll finish covering in the fuse and add some hatches after I've done some flight testing and work out where the Lipo is going to end up. ( That's assuming I don't destroy the thing in the process ) I thought the new configuration looked like some sort of Groom Lake X-plane, hence X-Flik.
(I'll get some better pics when we get some sun.)
