First scratch foamy build!
First plane build in a long time (47 years!) I posted photos and specs in the wrong area. I put it under a thread called new planes. Anyway, here is a link if you are interested in see it before I crash it!!:<:
OK this is what I posted under "New Planes"
Just got the plane finished today. I did a static test on the electronics but didn't try to crash it... I mean fly it. Too much rain and wet grass right now.
Like mentioned in another forum, I scared myself when I pushed the throttle wide open the first time! I've never been around any electrics before and found the thrust, noise, and wind amazing!

Looks good! Feel free to repost it here and to add.
Looks like a flyer...................
Looks great. A hand launcher, or you still have to put the gear on? I've been flying rc over 6 years now, and other than with the Radian, my hand launch success rate is pretty sad!
I saw on another thread you were looking for other rc pilots in HI. I know I've read forum threads with one, but I can't remember if it was here or over at RCGroups forum.
Nitroblast has family in HI I don't know which island though. You can send him a pm maybe he can hook you up if they are on the same island.
Good luck with your maiden flight plane looks nice from the video you linked seems pretty quick also.
Yes, the plane looks fast in the video. Fast enough I have second thoughts about using it as a beginners trainer. I have downloaded the trainer plans from MikeysRC and have the plans printed and cut out already. It has a 40" wingspan is a profile model. Should be a fast build and with the 1000kv motor and a 9x5 prop, hopefully a bit slower flyer.
Looks very fast to me, for a beginner. Ailerons may give you some grief too right now. Try this:
The STC is slow, but very aerobatic for 3CH, and is easy and cheap to build - easy to repair. I still find myself pulling it out for a relaxing 10 minute flight every now and then.
Took a few photos of David the test pilot with the planes. Camera didn't do a good job of flying photos though..... David found the plane would dip when you cut the power.... so the white planes motor got knocked of!! No biggy,
fixed in 5 minutes!!
