Too cute to pass up.
Looks well built.
Extending the wires from the motor to the ESC, measure twice, cut once.
It does draw 30 Amps from a Common Sense 3C2100 Lipo.
I used Hitec HS-82MG servos for the rudder and elevator.
It took a little wire bending to get the nosewheel steering to operate properly.
Hitec HS-55 servos for the ailerons.
Weight came out right at the recommended 28 oz.
C.g. is right over the main mounts.
Wing loading is 18 oz/sq. ft.
A long take off.
VERY active in pitch and roll!
Lands hot, with lots of skipping and bouncing.
Landed, moved the c.g. forward a bit, flew again.
Still needed more forward on the c.g.
Added some reflex to the ailerons to stabilize the roll a bit.
The nose gear mount broke out on the second "landing".
Glued that back in with lots of CA.
Added a 1/2 of lead in the nose.
Gets real small, real fast!
I wouldn't suggest hand-launching.
