I put this one together with the intentions of making it a pylon racer only to find out it was still just to slow. BUT I did discover I had accidently built my new favorite fun flyer. I smoothed out all the gun ports, narrowed the cockpit, and enlarged all the control surfaces. I also beefed up the internal framing and didn't lighten it like I normally do. I am using two large 1800kv outrunners on 3s right now, and I think I have found a winning setup.
Between the picture and the video, I finished out the nestles and did some more sanding work. But you get the idea. Like my other ones this one is also 73"
