At the moment I am putting in my reciever . and getting my ailerons and elevator , and rudder setup . Will get a better pic of it together later . The wife says I have to many hobbys , I say not enough . I say I have a summer hobby = rc planes and BBQ smoking , winter hobby = wine making .

Did gliders as a kid, largest was 72", had about 5 or six smaller ones, designed them so the wings would come off in a crash or for storing... when in collage, parents thought they were broken and trashed them all. :(

Yours looks great !

Not sure why but I have always liked RC anything. I have a Reef Racer 2 boat that I jammed a brushless and lipo pack in, it literally flys sometimes. I'll have to try planes again, when I was young they always just got smashed to fast to learn to fly them. Hey you guys ever try them cheap airhog helicopters, pretty cool for indoor use.
