3D_Kid's new build.

Just got my Extreme Flight 47.5" Yak yesterday and finished it up today. Was not a hard build, but wasn't easy either. The manual lacked in some key areas. For example, it doesn't explain where to pull the hatch off; I broke a little piece because the magnets were that strong. Another example was the fin. Apparantly I wasnt the only one to glue the fin on first before putting the elevators on; I had to cut a little notch out of the back to get them on. I charged up my new Fightpower 3S pack with my new Bantam BC8 eStation Charger. Will fly Saturday, hope to take pictures of the plane, and charger with my bad resolution (1.2mp) camera phone. Comments appreciated , Thanks, The Kid.

Also had to solder up the ESC and battery with Deans Ultra plugs, that was a first for me as well. This whole electric stuff is a learning experience, FOR EXAMPLE: I throttled up the motor in the living room (I was holding plane though) and the thing has so much power it sucked the ESC instruction sheet through the prop and shredded them to bits. It was kind-of scary and hilarious though.

Electrics are nice, I keep one in the trunk of my car and break it out and fly about anywhere? Post some pics, better the instructions than your finger.
