*Unofficial* FT Simple Cub

Finished my first Flite Test plane. This is also my first rc plane build in the hobby so noob here. I set this up as a 3channel and test flew it before I started painting. It flew great for me on a power pack B. I added a few changes afterwards such as reinforced landing gear and side dummy engines. The engines I made out of foam board scraps, cutting out the shapes, peeling off the paper, and sanding to the shape I wanted. the exhaust pipes are plastic straws. I havnt flown it post painting yet, hopefully it flys as good as it did before all the finishing.
