New Plane

While waiting for a Phase3 F-16, I put together this little sport jet.
It's a plans built from Rich U's MicroWave. I had the wing cut by FlyingFoam which aided greatly in quick assembly. It's a basic balsa and ply airplane which is what I like. I'm using a 64mm fan and 3000 mAh battery w/60A ESC, all stuff I had on hand. It's intended to be hand launched but I use a bungee launcher, as I don't like to toss'em into the air. I have been flying it for a couple of weeks and it flies well, it's pretty quick and I have had a couple of mishaps on landing. Nothing serious to date, damage is repaired in about 20 minutes. If I were to build another, I would put some dihedral in the wing. Just a personal preference.
