Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha

Since my first endeavor cracked up (literally), I decided that this time, I would spend a little more to potentially save me later.  I purchased an ARF (almost ready to fly ) unit.  The guy at the hobbyshop cut me a pretty good deal, (more to clear shelf space I think) so making the purchase didnt hurt near as much as I expected.  

Get it home (and I had an inkling of what I was getting into by the box this plane came in) and oh jeez!  What did I get myself into.  This thing has a 5′ wing span, weighs 5.5 lbs assembled and should be able to be seen from 1/2 a mile.  LOL  but by God, this thing is SOLID!  


Spent a few hours putting rhe final assembly together, setting servos and linkage, working on getting the CoG just right, and making a motor mount. (Plane is set up for a nitro engine, not electric. The way I put things together, I can still go that route, later, if I so desire.)

Set her in the drive this morning to test engine thrust and controls, and have to say,  very very pleased.  Maiden flight will have to wait on weather though.  Soon, I hope.

Man, this thing is BIG.
