This is a little "suitcase" plane that I received for Christmas. It went together in the matter of a couple hours at a very leisurely pace. I have a E-flite 400 outrunner, 2200 milli-amp battery, and a 40 amp speed controller. The video is me playing in the wind, probably 10-15mph.

3D Spirit

I finally finished my 3D Spirit by Thunder Tiger. Here is a look at a flight after inital trim. I really like how the plane handles in the air. There is relatively no info or reviews of this plane online. Given the way it flies I'd have to blame Thunder Tiger for poor marketing or myself for not looking hard enough. This is my first "3d" plane and i feel it is much easier to fly than my trainer.

Skeeter 30 Build

My dad gave me a Skeeter 30 kit from Kalteisen Aircraft. Its a simple build. Their website says the airframe can be built in 60-90 minutes, i agree. Here are the specs:

RTF Weight: 12oz-14oz
Length: 30
Recomended power system:

Motor: 400 outrunner

700mah-1100mah 3cell LiPo

Anyway, the wing went together in a flash, i think it took longer to CA. The documentation is decent, being that the kit is pretty self explanatory. It's rated for a beginner. I'm thinking about covering in red/red & white checker under.
