Had a little spare time and glued all tte top formers, the rudder and installed the rest of the elctronics

Also i used my top-secret depron compound forming technique to make a few important pieces of the Ducting

But im still not sure the esc will have enough cooling in its current position

I will make a video on conpound forming the depron

Thanks Ethan i'm just waiting on the new rotor from AEO but in the mean time im going to buy a 6 Blade rotor and then change it when the new rotor arrives

Im hoping for speeds in excess of 100mph when i change over to a dons wicked 7000kv with the 7 blade rotor, i should have around 320g of thrust on 4s maybe some day I'll build a 70mm FPV version....

Big thanks to P51P51 from www.wingmanrc.com for providing me with a GWS V-Tail mixer check out his site cos he has loads of.cool stuff

Just did some caclulations and the 40mm edf before it blew up, was drawing 15A on 2s and was pulling 133Watts an on 2s thats gives me 301 Watts/lb so i should be okay for ROG with some lightweight msic wire gears (thats at my predicted weight of 195g)

K, this is yet again proof that you can start and build and basically finish a project, Being that your F-35 is nearly complete.

I can't wait to see her fly!

Checking the fit of the top skin panel for the F-35 all looks good but it will need some trimming at the rear

Todays trip to the local hobby store to get some more foam, music wire wheels and some other misc items...
