I will wait for Mal B to finish his before I start mine. Mal and I have been helping each other for a couple of years now and together we are mastering the challenge. With Chris's advice guidance of course.When Mal B tests flies this we will video the first flight. I think we will need a calm day. Would probably be a good indoor model if it flies My spare blades arrived yesterday and I hope to make some more from the profile.

The kit was purchased direct from Banggood (China), AU$79.08 with insurance & free Air freight to Oz.
It went together fairly well mostly laser cut interlocking 2mm plywood.
If it fly's OK without may vices, I guess it's reasonable value if you want a quick build.
I fitted it out with a spare generic brand 2410 Brushless Outrunner 1300kv, 20 amp ESC, 2 x Tower Pro MG90S & 1 x Tower Pro SG90 micro servos.
Should be able to test fly with Co-pilot Neil's help this weekend, if weather OK that is
Attached a couple of final photos, looks fairly neat .

Excellent work and build documentation, you have really got stuck into the job.
Looks like you'll be test flying very soon, good luck.
I believe I've worked out what the mystery item in the box is
It's an angle template for setting the rotor head positive angle approx 4 degrees (# 6) and left roll approx 2 degrees (# 7).
