The Plane of Colorex
colorex's flight thread
For those of you that don't know, I won a $100 gift certificate from HobbyKing in one of FliteTest's episodes. You can watch the episode HERE. Since I did not have a plane, I decided to get one from HobbyKing. I asked the community what they wanted to see me fly, and you can see the results HERE.
In short, this is the tread where I will report everything until I complete my Bixler ARF. I will then start a flight log thread.

First order from HobbyKing.
Just ordered a small box from HobbyKing. It contains the following:
These are the parts required to complete the Bixler ARF. I am missing the Turnigy Neckstrap of Awesomeness, but that will come with the Bixler itself.
Update: The Neckstrap of Awesomeness is 4 grams too heavy. It will end up costing $7 more shipping unless I buy more stuff.
I have ordered the small parts first because I live in Ecuador, and I want to see if/how/when the package arrives. If everything is OK, I will proceed with the Bixler.
Shipment is 490 grams. [International (Registered) Air Mail 301-500g] $9.99 shipping
Spent so far on planes: $42.51
