Thanks kk. It does look like a much more expensive rc jet. And I'm getting anxious to get it in the air too

And I'm very happy to report that new battery is the right stuff. With a reasonably low voltage drop my experimental power system watt metered at 450watts 30 amps at about 3/4 throttle. And at full throttle gave 700 watts 40amps. Which is pushing my motor and ESC above their limits so no full throttle passes will be allowed. At least not till I'm ready for a more powerful system....lol

Today would a been a great day for the maiden here in the L A Ca. Area. About 75 deg. Sunny and calm winds. Eat your heart out Easterners. Lol
Anyway on with finishing it.
I diluted the Min Wax polycrylic 25 % with rubbing alcohol and it seemed to lay on nicely with no runs ,spraying it with my cheapie Harbor Freight 4oz cap. Gravity fed mini detail spray gun.
I'm hoping it works as a water slide decal fixer cuz they aren't holding up to touching with fingers. Seems to be sealing them on pretty good. And I'm hoping to seal the white foam from soiling. I also hope it doesn't yellow in sunlight like Min Wax polyeurathane did.
I'm also gonna glass the belly with it and dryer softener sheets

Still unflown but I went by the Apollo 11 field in Van Nuyes and took this photo op with some of my buddies T45s. They fly theirs in perfect formation
