Default $100 scratch build contest: Micro Radian (Finished)

I will be building a Ultra micro Radian. It will be an (almost) Identical scale flying replica.
The parts list is.
AR6300: $50
Micro servo from spektrum: $16
Blue arrow servo: $5
Eflight 2s 800mah: $15
Hobby king engine and micro ESC: around $13 ( I know that's all I paid but I cant find them on the website because they are unmarked)

Also, all of that was without shipping charges. I assume shipping was not included. :o

Enjoy -Alex

Sounds like a cool project, Alex. Might have to steal this one if it comes out well. Watching. John.

Welcome to the contest Alex. You might want to swap out that $50 Rx for a clone...you only have $1 for the airframe.

I gave it a test fly! Does not like alot of wind. Worked great though!!!
THe motor and folding prop are ok but just enough power to fly. If I swapped the folding prop for a mini gws prop I have it will go faster. Although hard to beat the looks of the folding prop. -Alex
PS I will upload a video of the flying later!!!!
Just need to balance it and its ready to paint!!!

I love the beautiful graceful curved wing. How on earth did you cut that out?

Im gonna put off setting up the voting poll until this weekend. Everyone get your price lists current if you want to be in the voting. I only saw 4 entries that had their price/material/source list posted. I didnt specify it in the rules, but Id prefer your price list to be on the first post. If you dont know how to edit your posts, PM me and Ill try to walk you thru it.
