Very nice, D! Enjoy that maiden. She's a blast to fly.

I like the way the transparent over red came out. I was thinking of trying that scheme, but was worried I wouldn't be able to tell orientation as well... I'd say it looks good from the pictures

On the right side of the Hstab, is that transparent yellow? I really like that section...

Yes, I did actually had a chance to maiden. Of course with conservative rates. All in all, a pleasure to fly with my limited skill set. Slow and Fast as you want, good character w/o any harshness at all. It builds confidence from the very first outing.

Flipped it to high rates and this thing is an animal. Rolls like a batt out of **LL!. I noticed that she is very sensitive to input so I dial up more exponential to smooth her out (I just realized that there is a play on words there . I have to say that the Axon will get to my limit before I get close to hers.

Drivetrain: Razor 400, ETEC 1200 3 cell, 10 x 8

Additionally, the solid fuse with all of the other design criteria make for a very stout plane. Especially the triangulated ailerons and wing construction.

Bottom line: Buy it, it will not dissapoint. Now if I could only learn how to fly.... now that is another story.
