Flite Test Commuter Electric Airplane Kit (762mm)
Yes the build is a bit different but I flew for a minute this evening. Still working on the trim (rudder) Ran out of daylight and broke a prop before I got it dialed in....

The build video I watched was on the tech channel...two hours after it was posted. Good one Mr.Bixler. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nE2933vb_Cw

You should watch the nose portion of the video a couple of times. It make sense when you are finished. :) Especially the fiddly bits right at the end...or should I say nose. It's lovely how the compound angles all come together. Go slow- get done fast.

As I was experimenting with a new flight controller I initially taped the wing on. Hard crash tore the top of the windshield a bit.

Made a decision to go with the flight controller and glued the wing on...added the struts and repaired the little tear...

This is a tough little bird.

Now that I know how to do it I am ordering a second Commuter.
