I like the landing gear -- looks a bit heavy, though.

Plans are here:
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1012551
they are designed to use 6mm deperon and hextronik 24 gm outrunners but I used this motor instead:http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=14739. It runs well.
I flew it awile ago, and it flies nice, but I will wait untill spring to fly it again. Its fast and stable. I did build an 16" ws one for the ar64pp but it never flew right.
