I took the hornet outside and put it on the end of my driveway and thought "there is no way that I'm going to see this thing well enough to fly worth a darn, it's to small !! " So I gave it a face lift, it doesn't look like much from 12inches away but from 20ft back I can see it much better now.

The gear is "in house" to finish the build now but this weekend was a wash as far as build time.

Final equipment List:

AXI 2208/20 25T pinion
Jeti Spin 11 ESC
Berg7P for Rx
Futaba GY240 paired with HS-50 for tail
Futaba S3114's for swash

85-100g 1000-1320mah Lipo

Projected AUW 360g

Been a while since I made a blog entry, figured I would post my two latest builds, the Thunder Tiger Mini-T or E325 which is finished now and a Hornet X3D micro. Two very different helis with two different roles, the Mini-T will serve as a good cruiser at the club field and the Hornet will provide me with some back yard flight that my larger helis can't deliver.
