    I'm right there with you! This 3d stuff is new for me and I am still surprised by the precision of the biplane compared to the edge. The only drawback is finding a day with no breeze. I've got to find an indoor flying location.

    Hi all,
    Finished my build a few days ago , looks like its going to be a good one. I was looking for other flight vids aside from jays ? Just waiting for the rain and winds to calm down for my maiden ..

    Maybe I'll post a test video although I have not had a windless day yet. And at 10 oz total weight a sneeze sets it off course! I am trying to find a gym to fly in since kf4 isn't an option ;-)

    Hey thx , I've been playing with card stock lately , its light and has a nice finish to it . I don't like to make my first model too nice , not until I know that it fly's well.. I just covered the cowl and rear bottom , helps to hold and hide the ugly wires n bits.

    Not as much as the 300 (made both with fb) but on such a small plane it should be easy to fix though .

    Mine has no flex. I used two diagonal braces on the fuselage and I may remove one of them because it's overkill. I'm uploading my maiden now! I posted an unlisted video last week for Jay to see and then forgot to edit and repost.

    ok so i have decided to build this plane. one question, if you have carbon only on the top wing with the sfg connected is it strong enough.
