I need a proper EDF plane in my life, one that has a decent undercarriage, awesome flight characteristics, impressive looks and something that I could afford.
Seeing this airframe kit for around £150 on Banggood I plumped for it.
No hardware is included so that means I can build it over several months, making it affordable on my meagre wage.
Have the EDF and ESC unit on the way, have bought a suitable gear sequencer unit.
Next payday I will get the undercarriage set and the receiver.
The payday after that, the digital servos and other bits and bobs.
Finally the flight batteries as 5000 6S LiPos are not exactly cheap :)
Anyway....that's the plan and hopefully before the end of summer it will be stretching it's massive wings.
For now....I'm looking at this beautiful airframe and longing to get going.
