Layout is simple. Flat surface is easy to make. Angles are cut well on the Fancy Foam design. Fuselages to wing joint is simple.

Top of fuselage mounted. Servos mounted. JR 188 are fast and precise. Motor mounted, eflight 250 with Castle 9. Landing gear mounted.

Would like to thank my neighbor (a fellow Aussie) for the airbrush assistance.

Airplane complete flies good F3P rolls are slow and predictable. Flight speed is slow and graceful.
