20 Jun 09 - Building this model took very little time and it produces a very nice looking model.  I made a few changes during the build such as replacing the two 1.6mm diameter Aluminium Spars with 2 pieces of 3mm x 1mm Carbon strip and the control horns with 2mm carbon rod.  I also decided to run it on 3S, which is why the weight is a little higher than the normal 220g; I could easily convert it back to 2S if I choose to later.  This is also my first model to use 2.4GHz radio.
