Gonna try to get photos on to facebook. I do not have the patience to resize and what not. I will tell you I have built this twice( first time builders error and crashed second flight). It is a staple- keep-around plane for me!! Handles extremely well. capable of alot of aerobatic manuevers. flies well slow or fast. have tried it in two diff. sizes and two diff. motors\props etc.

here you can see the wing parts. This was my first successful foam wing hotwire cut.... EVER!! That is also how i cut the fuse. the last one is of the stab with 1\4" balsa on l.e.

Sorry, we went to an airshow, and my wife did not get the rest of build pics transferred before wiping the camera clean. >:( But i took these to try and show how it looks. It flies great!! I do have video that i will try to get onto youtube, and then a link. Unless someone knows a different way

OH.. and the motor is not on there because I have to change a front bearing( crashed different plane, stole the motor to find out bad bearing). plus, it is a perfect time to throw on a quick paint job!!
