Looking good Calvin!

My last one suffered from sun exposure and warped pretty bad. I really need to do another, it was one of my favorite pushers.

So I took nac's plans and scaled them down to an 18" wingspan, or 66% of original size (I've done this to several of these types of planes as well, and they fly great!). Last weekend I got it all assembled and ready for electronics. Everything I get for it will come from Nico Hobbies (motor, ESC, prop, prop adapter, 5g servos, lipo), and I should have it ready to fly this coming weekend.

It's constructed from 3mm depron for everything except the center fuse section, which is still 6mm for strength.

I'll post some pics up soon with it next to my nac F-4 to give a size comparison.
