29 Dec 11 - I decided I wanted more power so have fitted an uprated motor, ESC and larger battery pack. Whilst it is significantly heavier than it was, the wing loading is still low and the power is 4 times higher.
25 May 09 - I bought this at the South West Model Show (at the Bath & West Showground) on 18 Apr 09. The model comes pre-painted on the top surface and this is the Storm scheme. It is a quick build as there isn't much to do. I did add a liteply keel between the cores to make launching easier. The motor would be quite happy running on a 3S pack using the Günther propeller so I think I'll get a pack to try it.
