Hey guys,

Here is my latest build yet to find a name, it is a KFM2 40 inches wing span on a V-Tail set up, the fuse is 40 inches as well more or less, I just purchased a 65mm EDF motor and I'm not yet decided if I'll use that one or re use my 70mm.

Should be maiden in a couple of days.

It seems that I'm hooked with EDF motor now.

Mantis its alright but this type of nose the front of the plane look like a Sparrow now ... so what you say about " The Sparrow"?

Well Maiden happened yesterday and it flew ok, very twitchy on controls even with dual rates, I would expect it to be a bit more fast then it is actually.

It is areobatic frame, loops on a dime, great response on ailerons too and did some inverted as well.

I will do a video later this afternoon as my Gopro was dead flat on maiden yesterday unfortunately.
