Duster has potential but I'm disappointed!

Flitetest: I realize I only invested $40, including S&H in the FT Duster. Perhaps it is a case of : You get what you paid for. The foam material leaves a lot of room for error despite the excellent cut marks. It doesn't always line up as it should. That's a problem and annoying. I admit I made some errors of my own. Some errors were a result of not hearing important instruction details. I'll accept that responsibility. I would add that the video, while 90 percent well done, some details where missing. For example, the instruction on the power pod build is lacking. I'm having difficulty getting my power pod to insert into the fuse properly--ugh. I'll try sanding and other possible solutions. I like the Duster and I think it will eventually fly fine, but I'm not certain I would recommend it to a fellow pilot/builder.

Wings!

This was a great plane and a really fun build overall. Believe me when I say this, the Duster goes like blazes!! The only problems I had were: A. The canopy didn't fit right despite following the video to the "T" B. The wings didn't fit right and I ended up ripping the bottom part of the plane and having to glue like EVERYTHING. Everything else was awesome!
