Has anybody started this one yet?

I'm looking for a suitable spinner, any tips?
Will the one below suit it?

Got the kit a couple of days ago, this really looks like it's going to be a great little bird.

Looking to be a great bird.

Tips for those building. The wheel spats are somewhat "shallow" so the wheel rubs the inside, place them as high as possible to avoid dremeling too much.
When gluing in the batterytray, make sure to make it horizontal, that is, place the inner end up near the motor. It's a bit short for this but it needs to be there otherwise battery won't fit between the front wheel and the tray.

I've made a hole in the tail according to instructions to allow airflow.

Otherwise it's very straight forward and I'm hoping for good flying weather the coming weekend.

Good Day TinTin

Have just bought the kit and am busy assembling however have allready found some parts of the build quite frustrating. I would really like to hear from you with regards to how you found it.

Regards
Dave

Sure Dave, what parts are you thinking about?

I have put another spinner on the plane.
An MPJ 30mm is right in size for the model but requires a lot of dremeling to fit the propeller.
