    Maiden flight today!
    Flew perfect!

    Absolutely no trim needed, flew well, tight loops and glides beautifully.
    No video :-(

    Needs paint though.

    You're going to love it. I had a blast with both the original and the MKII.

    Excellent ... we're here to help and share ideas. It truly is a fun little plane to fly too btw.

    Don't be shy about asking questions, offering suggestions or just some good ole back and forth banter.

    Keep us posted

    Hello RCUrso! As Tom says, the build instruction is here in this thread in the first post where JettaManDan posted pictures. Also there is this MK1 video which is almost the same... Good Luck!
