I would not claim anything for my set up other than it is cheap!
All the bits are about the cheapest you can buy. The whole thing, motor, radio, ESC, battery, servos, glue and Depron (but not the TX) has cost not much over £20 ($30) and of course quite a lot of time but that is half the fun.
If it flies reasonably I shall be satisfied.
The first test of the fan and shroud mounted in the airframe.
The elevator servo mounted in the port fin.
Not particularly elegant but admirably simple.
The nose will be completed (along with the final battery position) once the tail assembly is complete.
