Rampman's Mako2

Another Arizona Mako2 is Born!

In old school horsetrading, Rampman and I came to terms. For other considerations, I agreed to scratch build another Mako2 (Zoom's design) for my flying buddy, Rick.
The plane is built and ready for covering. The balsa airframe weighs in at 4.7oz with four Spektrum S75 servos. My Mako2 has an AUW of 9.5 oz with TP3s730, wire gear and multiple layers of covering. Rick's should be in the same range and fly every bit as well as mine.
The images are of both planes. ( You gotta love Photoshop)

wingspan 32"
chord 11"
OA Length 36"
MicroDan 2505 3D w/ GWS 9x5EP
Here's the Original Mako

WOW! Look's great, I have been away from RC for a long time, 10yrs. or better and I remember when profiles were built of solid sheet balsa. This sparks some ideas of my own for future projects. I really like the wing frame work. Although the potential color schemes look to be done in Photoshop, nice idea for brain storming.

Rick was not sure of schemes, so I did the Photoshop thing. It works good for conceptual visualization.
Here's some other concepts I threw out.
