Another winter build

After the total loss of this plane last year decided to make a new one prom my plans but make a few changes to the original.

Wing span increased by 100mm, aileron area increased by 20%, battery box position lowered by 15mm, lower wing/landing fairing reduced to 8mm,
finger pockets cut into lower wing skin, 1.5 degree dihedral added, air scoop for ESC added.

Had the maiden flight today nearly ended before it started as the plane did not release from the bungee cleanly hanging on until it had pulled it taut not the best start but got away with it. Need to mod the hook and release before next attempt.

The build pictures are from last years model and only have finished pictures of this one.

Reminds me a little of the "Turbinator" with the sort of boxy looking fuse, but yours is more sophisticated with the ducting. Nice build!
