Naah..your butt will probably make it just fine

Its not difficult to build that thing as most of the stuff alignes squarely and is easily set up. Go for it

cool thanks, by the way yours looks great how did you get the paint to go on that smooth? what did you prime it with...

do you think the promax 400 coblat motor will be sufficant? we're at a high altitude
4500 feet, or does it need to be in the 300w range....

Actually it isnt as smooth as the pictures would like you to know But good enough.
Thanks for the compliment tho

Dont know how it will perform at altitude as I fly at sealevel myself but I would guess a Promax would be sufficient. Ask Robert at ElectricJetFactory - he should be able to help you out.

Happy flying.
