Yep. Ordered and paid for. I got the yellow Python. Ordered a Moki 250 from Troy Built Models today. I'll get the motor Tuesday. Will post pictures then. Plane won't be here for a few weeks.

Stay tuned!!!

The brown truck just unloaded this-and if it runs half as good as it looks-my flying buddies will hate me for life.

Sorry about the "gap" in posting, but I finished up the construction yesterday. Down to balancing and programming.

Almost exactly one year from order placed to roll out. I'm not that slow, I just work way out of town!

The maiden flight went beautifully. I believe we put 3 flights on it with no problems what so ever. I balanced it at 50 mm aft of the leading edge of the bottom wing, was a little tail heavy. All in all, it was great.

Awesome! I would love to hear the engine run, any vid of the flight or running?
