90mm, 8S Mercury powered sling shooter "Hornet".

Another bargain under my thump.

To keep it simple I go for a sling shooter option.

90mm Mercury power

The sling shooter option, eliminating 10 servos to keep it simple.

Touch of colour.

Gave it a little vertical thrust check run, at 3kg AUW it seem to hold nicely, with the bungee launch it'll be a ballistic take off.
(F18 thrust check)

Just about completed, the range check is next with the hope of nice flying condition for its maiden sling shoot in the very near future.

Bit of colours lift after the first clear coat.

This was yesty, raining again today!
