That is the ZXL nex5 build. I just posted pics of building it in this thread, looks like this

When you power up holding it's nose, you just roll your arm over your head and let go. it has unlimited vertical, 6s power but not real fast. Think Jim @ uthere said 72mph, 4 kilo

Question for all those that have built one. Im looking at getting on myself just wondering what other cabeling are you using to extend the Vtx and Uhf rx in the wings? Are you making your own or buying and if so where from?
Im just trying to get everything together that i will need in order to start my own build.
I plan on running gopro with flite cam, 600 mw vtx, and ezuhf 8ch rx, with the tbs ezosd.

Thanks for any advise you can give me. Much appreciated.

Peal back the crumpled lam and cut off. Pour some boiling hot water over the crumpled foam and it should go back to it's original shape, Use some gorilla glue and glue the tears back together. Make sure you get the glue into the tear, and not just on the surface. Clean up, laminate again and you should be good to go.

The soldering rig you set up, what kind of wire did you use? It's a pretty genius idea

I must say it's not "my" idea , but it's 1.5mm or 2mm copper wire. the wire don't need to be too much rigid, important is the heat that the soldering can produce, if you have good heat, the copper will cut the foam like butter.. and the copper wire will not bend during work.

Mine is a 150 watt soldering iron and works great.

You can use servo lead to extend all the wires, just pick up a couple of 24" servo extensions and you good to go.
