Well today I had off from work, so I started on my VQ models AT-6. This is 60" WS ARF designed to be flown with a .46 two-stroke glow engine. In theory it will weigh around 6 lbs.
The kit quality is very nice. It is going together very easily. Hardware is very complete. Anyone need a fuel tank? :-)
I'm taking lots of pix as I assemble it. Hopefully I'll be doing a complete build thread on it after it is completed.
I plan to fly it with a Reaper GR-60 motor, 60 Amp ESC, and 4S 3700 mAH lipo packs.
It can take retracts, and while it is VERY tempting to jump right in and take them on, I don't have any retract servos. To start with, I will build it with fixed gear. Maybe if it flies nicely, I'll order the retract servo and mechanical retracts.
