    Whew! We hate hearing when people have issues, so I'm glad it's OK now. I left my girl Tammy at staples for Pam at print Plus. Pam prints the full pdfs at $3.25 per sheet. Maybe you can find a local printer to do the same for you? For $3.25 a full pdf sheet is worth it - saves you so much time. Plus there's no built in error from home printer's to deal with. Good luck Jimbo!

    Nice. .. it's been running me around 7-8 bux a sheet at Staples and I usually always print two in case I mess one up.

    Oh. .and thank you. I hate these plans that label something x2. This was also the primary reason I started buying 2 copies of one print out.

    Thanks Greg. Just got done putting 2 more batteries through it.
    Really enjoying this one.

    It's a Emax 2822 motor . About 1400kv on 3s and a 10x6 prop.
    AUW with a 500mah battery is 11.9 oz.
    A little heavier than I wanted but it doesn't bother at all.
    It slows down nicely and hovers as good as my skill allows.
    I also tried a 9x5 prop and didn't see much difference. Maybe a little less "snap".
    A lot of fun to fly and for a fraction of the price of a commercial equivalent.

    Well I ended up putting a Firepower 300 speed 1600kv motor in her and a 8x3.8 sf prop and 20 amp esc and tried it out with a 800 Mah 2 cell battery,AOW 11.90 o/z with 14 o/z of thrust with this set up.I really did'nt want to go crazy with the paint scheme even thow there is plenty out there to go by so i came up with this,it still needs some yellow markings on the tail.I held her by the tail, pointed it up and gave her some throttle,she will go with no problem. 001.JPG

    I have a bunch of 1600 3's but i would have to put another spar in the wing becouse of the mpf,they are a bit heavy.I also have 1000 and 1300 2's to test out in it soon as i get it out to the field.

    All done ready to maiden. I'm using a 2 cell 1000 mah, an unknown motor, 25 amp esc with 8x3.8 apc prop. It is right at 12 oz.

    Spent a couple hours building and a few days painting.

    That's alright though, it was a fun build and I am sure with fly just as well.

    so.....been a while since i have built something.....and this one has my attention..as usual i'm gonna do stuff a bit different...I have a mix of materials at my disposal..so....i'm gonna combine them. I'm going with depron wings...and with EPP fuselage. Thought being i'll get a but less wing flex maybe..and some crash resistance from the EPP. Maybe! lol...

    going to do a traditional servo setup..single aileron servo...though of running duals for flaperons..but wanted simplicity....not sure what motor i'm gonna go with yet....

    just a few pics to show i'm actually doing this ;)

    grey depron wings and white EPP Fuse....not sure what paint i will use if any....may go simple and bare foam ;)
