6 Jun 12 - I can't believe it's almost 4 years since I bought this kit.  Having started it took me all of a days work to build it, and most of that was is devising a good system for the aileron connections to automatically make when the wings are plugged in.  Considering I've used the equipment described, with the only variations being the self-connecting aileron plugs (~5g) and a battery monitor ~8g), I can't see how you could possibly achieve the stated weight of 425g; the empty airframe can't be far off that.  But no matter the wing loading and WCL are good for slope flying.
