Default My Eros build for electric..

After admiring the design for years, I finally started my Eros. The build is pretty much as per the plan, (except I have ommited the engine bearers) and F3 is now aluminium instead of 1/16" ply. I have not chosen a suitable brushless motor yet, but the space up front will not be an issue. She will be finished in Oracover Cad Yellow with blue cheat lines, as per the original gracing the front cover of Aeromodeller 1948.. Love the huge wheel spats - they make the model look very sporty for its age!
