I'm going to build it for sure. I'm not going to use propsaver on DT750 with such a big props though (I've learned the lesson when I've tried it on my tricopter - way too much torque, it simply asks for a failure).

Where is the union man?
You should really show how to cut the dangerous prop axle or fit a rubber spinner.
A sharp thing like that in the face or eye .......................

WTFok??!! This plane looks awesome. I'm definitely going to put one of these together, so please bring on the build video. What's the AUW, because it seems pretty high powered and I'm thinking of dialing back a bit on the motor and prop as I don't really need a 2:1 thrust ratio ;)

Here is a pic of the one Josh made mention of, I built this about 5 years ago and he and I used to streamer combat like crazy with them.....def one of the most fun times I have had in my flying career was doing streamer combat with these planes, they really fly great!

Same plane... Didn't even think of that pic!
Yea, same model......Josh B and I a few years ago used to dogfight these with streamers. This is the plane Josh B. mentions in the episode. He said "the camera B guy" used to fly these with me and do streamer combat. This one is built off of the same plans (by PJAS (sp) from RCGroups) that they used to make the ones from the episode, I just made mine 5 years ago. (I dont have it anymore, the wings got warped when I had it in my truck on a hot day. I have another one cut out and ready to assemble from 5 years ago, I have just never taken the time to put it together....someday)
