    The building process is straight forward and well described if you have a little bit of experience.
    Today I finished the build-stage including rough sanding.
    I went to our local field and tried a pre-maiden, because I would not invest further time (minwax, paint, decals) before I get results.

    It flew awesome. Straight out of the hand, no bad tendencies, the CG is correct -awesome !!!!!!!!.

    I used the standard setup (2200kv Motor, 40A ESC, 2200Ah 3S Lipo). Due to the wind I missed a gyro, but it is absolut NOT necessary.
    Maybe it was, because I build as light as possible, under 500g
    NOW i will do the paint job.


    Thank you for your work and enthusiasm and the „small“ fee, so I can try a model without ruin my treasury.
    Your models are outstanding, well I know only this one.
    Lets see what I try next…..

    Another awesome designed Jet from Craig
    F-18 Hornet
    VFA-122 Dessert Bogey Camo scheme
    AUW without battery 780g,
    all 3D parts used with LW-PLA and fantastic clear Canopy with crazy little pilot inside,
    6mm balsa leading edge strips on the wings only
    QX-Motor 70mm 6 blade EDF – 2300kV i think
    Beatles 50amp ESC – 60 would be better 🙂
    4x MG Tower pro MG servo’s (original)
    Flysky i6 receiver
    4s Zippy 2700mAh but can take larger with the space available
    86mph recorded on GPS in cockpit during flight 🙂
    Flying on 58mm CG very well with neutral flight controls
    13mm +/- on Aileron travel max and rolls like a drill
    24mm +/- on Elevator – add expo 🙂
    very stable aircraft and no requirement for Gyro
    fly’s fast and slow fantastic

    It’s a great flyer. I built it using PLA instead of LW-PLA which made it a bit heavy but it still flies great.
    I used:
    -FMS EDF 64mm 3900kv for 3S (even though it is only 3S it was able to fly pretty fast but it wont break any speed records)
    -RTF weight is 915 grams (without lipo 740g)
    -ESC Hobbywing Skywalker 50A
    -Soaring Lipo 3S 2200mah with 30C

    I think this is awesome Aircraft that is easy to build and easy to fly.
