6 Jan 12 - I have just finished this EPP foam model, which appealed to me as it is a little unusual.  I was amazed that ready to fly, and with the stickers fitted, it turned out 0.1g heavier than the instructions sheet claims; and I'd used 3.7g servos instead of the specified 2.5g.  The miniscule motor produces an amazing amount of thrust and will almost support the weight of the model in a static vertical position; should be fun to fly.
