Default 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!
