It has this little 2200kv motor in the back.

I also have a floaterjet motor, that would provide almost scale performance on a four cell.:rolleyes:
It is terribly simple. Just a 24" x 24" triangle for the wing, and then an 18" long fuse from that.
No plan, I just saw a picture and got OCD about it.:p

Really? I only want a REALLY close look at that right wing!:p
I made a few departures from scale, but I will gradually move them back as I progress with flight testing.
I might even do some LOS camera Filming with my brother's easy star too.

Okay,
I have a receiver issue right now, and had to use my little 3 channel hitec setup.
One stick, dinky throttle slider, and no dual rates!
I have to be Really precise.
Rolls are blazing, but I have to gently coax turns, because if the wing stalls, it torquerolls very quickly.
Parachutes are cool, and I can float it in at about 70 degrees nose up.
Unfortunately, I moved the fins inward to their scale locations, and it went out of control in the yaw axis.
After a crazy flight, I eventually pile drove it at my feet.
Mark two will have a floater jet motor on a 4 cell and a 5x5.:D
