Go to work, and make your coworkers sick as you explain in detail how you plan to assemble your new airframe when you get home.

That's what I would do.

Heck, I've done it.

GREAT job Josh. Maybe your best work to date. I will be ordering the kit ASAP. Any chance of getting the drawings in a format I can put on my CNC machine? Solidworks, AutoCAD, or what ever you guys use to draw them?

Purchased! I've been waiting for this one ever since it was first suggested! I cant wait for it to arrive.... hopefully the postal system is kind and it comes undamaged!

Thanks for a great looking plane and crazy mode looks awesome!

How about you Flite Test guys giving us some insight into the design process for a swappable series model and the subsequent layout and laser cutting of same.

I too would like to oder this plane but it is as expensive to post to Europe as it is to buy it! so my question is what material can i use instead of the one used here, as i dont think i can get this material in Germany, so could i use Depron??

You did a great job brother! Try a touch more nose weight and make sure your elevator throws are small. The elevator is huge and very sensitive. You are the first to get her built! Way to go!

Heck of a design and very easy to follow, just time consuming. This is the first plane where I had to stop and say "I need sleep" I will move the cg line forward a bit and she will fly.
