    I was just thinking about my Alpha Jet MK2 today and how I need to build another but lighter. now that I have more experience to really see how good of a high alpha jet it is.

    Caution. Extra paint means extra weight.

    Here's an oldie but goodie video. The Alpha Jet mk2 is so easy to fly right side up and inverted! Don't forget Vertical Take Off either!

    I'm just building mine now. So cool and easy build. :) Was just wondering if I'm supposed to give the bottom plate a dyhedral? Or is it flat? Ready to put on top plates. The last two pieces and off to high alpha land. Hurray! !!

    I always pull up on the outside wing tips when I'm gluing the top wings so that there is a little bit of dihedral. Just a tad. Glad you are finding it easy - Let's see it!

    Added landing gear. Don't really have grass here in Yellowknife. Also had a chance to read more of this thread. I'm wanting to put in leds in it as the dark season is coming. I'll see what I can pick up at the local hardware store.
    Ps. Built a 120% mosquito earlier this year. Love that bird :)

    Looks great, YKFlyer! The auto department of Walmart has good led strips which also have the push button on/off as well as blinking feature. Runs off if the lipo voltage too!

    Nope. Lights aren't going to happen :( . To get enough I'm looking at 80$. I guess I'll wait till my next HK order in the spring. ;)
