    Made the Cargo out of dollar tree foam and painted it with little tubes of artist paint. Built the whole plane and painted it for a total of $5!!!

    looks good corbyn, have you put any carbon in that wing. i used two E-Power GF2210 1534Kv motors on 8x3.8apc props and as you can see in the vid it has plenty of power. i allso put carbon from the bottom of the body to the wing on a angle. i like the grey and black allot.

    think the 1100's Corby are a little too few kv's for one of these...with big props it will have a lot of thrust but not a lot of prop speed..so it will be a slow flyer for sure...i'm using 1700 blue wonders on mine and with a ground test only so far it boogies...i'd go 1300's at the smallest...hobbyking sells them or headsuprc does too...

    Thanks guys, Haha but who am I kidding I am a noob that was my first plane build and im 15 years old so I am a noob. I have only flown one plane and that was the champ, I bought 2 other more spendy planes and they didnt even fly. This is my first scratch build.

    well it looks good for your first, just dont smash it up. make sure you post a vid on the maiden, it will look good in the air the way you have painted it.

    it is a 75% of the one on rcgroups that everyone has built..39 inch wingspan..fully sheeted airfoil wing..using 2 1700kv blue wonders and twin 25 amp esc's in parallel...I made the elevator oversize for some big pitch control...and the steering is tied into the rudder so i can steer on the ground...weather has been crappy so no maiden yet..waiting for the right day and opportunity...
