Its a simple V1 shogun inside a Gaui Airwolf fuselage. The ones sold by EF on hobbypeople and made by Gaui. I believe they have an MD500, MD500E and 222/Airwolf. The retracts were custom made by me and are CF construct.

To attach thumbnail links, clicked the advanced button and look for "manage Attachments" button. I think you can figure it out from there.
Here are the retracts for the 222....construction was simple using rect. CF rod, CA and nylon thread/CA for the stressed joints. The nose gear is retractable off the shelf bit I had laying around. weight is 48 grams.
AUW for the 222 is 685 grams. It has no problem with sport flying. Stall turns and big loops are basically effortless. The fuselage tracks well in ff and in reality would fly better without a HH gyro.
My little CX2 and my Trex. I painted the purple/blue/white/silver/teal canopy myself. Came out ok I Guess??

Tinman, yep sure did, painters masking tape and cans of paint. I can get the name/type if you need. I still need to clean the canopy and apply clearcoat, just waiting for the paint to cure a bit more so my cleaner doesn't take the paint off
The before looks like my CP.
I bought the same tail support kit.
How did you attach the tail support to the boom?
The provided clamp is too big. I tried several kinds of
shims, but they were all too loose to hold the support in

Well I hope this works, I have never up loaded photos. I was waiting for a new tail boom for my blade cp. So I was messing around with some transfers for a pinebox durby car. I found them at hobby lobby. They worked out great for my canopy. When my tail boom arrived I put some green fuel tubing over it. I hope that the tubing might help against boom strikes in the future. Now that I know the transfers work I will order a new canopy and design a better one.
