so...somehow i got my name on the list to partake in this build. i thought "heck! to many great builders
yesterday i got 2 dental implants drilled into my jaw so i took today off to heal and go flying. then i went down to the man cave and got to thinking about the $50 build. i have a bunch of scrap balsa in boxs and maybe 4 sets of wings from birds i crashed and saved the wings.
i took a picture of the funjet and got started building on the fly...no plans,just a vision that falls together. i built the fuse with maybe $10 worth of scrape balsa,i still have to design the vertical[or verticals] and decide which wing set to use. the brio wings will most likely be used as the 3dhs 42" wings are new. i have a dons wicked 3000kv motor to use and a 85amp esc. also have several 2200 4cell zippy batteries that are old. they may do the trick as i don't want to risk my better 4cell cell packs on this bird. should be finished with this funjet Sunday.
,i guess the wings being built already disqualifies me for not being a complete scratch build..oh well,those are the breaks
