    I am a beginner and appreciate the build it yourself budget approach. I have built the model and now need to wire and motor up. What I need to know is how do you wire this plane. It has no true aileron only two rudders? How do you fly with two rudders acting like ailerons? Do you need a controller to compensate and move both together?

    Josh, great build video from Mikey's design. I love how you also made a cleaner look from the design. You're the man! But I have to ask you kindly to stop saying the hot glue "dries". I know its probably a habit from years of using standard glues. How about the hot glue cools, rather than (dries or cures)

    On this video, stop at the point where he shows the plans and you can get good clues from their taped together plan set… Once you get it started, it goes together pretty well…

    What is the dry weight of the plane? (without batt & fpv gear)?
    I've ended with 1200 g, and feel it's too heavy 🙁

    Anyone try building this out of other material? Thin plywood? Fiber glass board?

    be advised its really hard to change travel adjust and other functions as its digital but needs computer interface.

    I love this design! I want to build this plane, however, I am brand new to the hobby. Can someone tell me the name of a good, not too expensive RC transmitter and also what kind of range should I expect from it? I've heard that all transmitters reach out to about 1.5 miles. Is that about right? Thanks!
