+1 on the included servo tray. I hope to not see anymore kits come out that don't either have a tray or a removable nose. Here's to easier building!

Looking sweet in every other way too. How could a plane not fly well that looks that good!

Thank you guys! We are testing molds now, the first test piece was the fuse and it came out great. Next test pieces are the wings and tails, and then check everything for alignment and fit. Once everything is approved we will go on to do the final polish on the molds (it is only rough polish right now) and start testing flying parts.
I'm hopeful I'll have one or two different layups to test when I get back around Jan 6th, and get any necessary changes to the layup shot to the factory to do more testing. If things go well we should see deliveries in late January for the first customers

Wayne, would love to see one in your quiver! Thank you for the interest!

Mark, I will have it up soon. If I can get out of bed a little bit today I will have it set up. At the moment still riding the bed not really able to do much in my 5-minute spurts before I have to go back to bed to lay down and rest, so if I do get it set up may not have much info there other than some critical info like price, approx delivery dates, some specs, etc, initially.

Realized this morning that I forgot to update a setting when I uploaded the product so it was charging the EMS shipping extra - have fixed it.

I will be waiting impatiently to see the graphics and color choices. When spring is in the air is when new planes burst forth in my garden.

Been out of commission too long, finally well enough to go out a little bit with the family... wife isn't happy I spent 2 weeks of our vacation stuck in the bed being sick
So from now until we leave on the 4th we'll probably be out doing non-stop touristy things... shooting things... skiing... buying things... hahaha... if I don't reply to your message... please be patient I'll probably get to it once I'm back in the office.

Managed to finish up the graphics for the Go Mini before today's activities... colors will be like the vibe 2 in that it'll be a primary color plus a splash of yellow. I think it really made the planes pop in the air and photos. Glass version will have a light coat of white paint on the top, bottom will be bare no paint with the colored stripes. Tails on the glass version will be colored fiberglass.

Like the bottoms... Tops not so much...

I'm a carbon guy so I was thinking black top with the name like you did with the Vibe and stripes on the bottom for orientation.

I also like a matching color canopy so that the nose is solid color.

Not that I am picky...

I kind of agree, but will be happy to test it out no matter what it looks like

We've tried a very minimalist design like that before but the feedback was pretty bad
