Don Smith Tu-95 FINALLY 2018

15 years ago I set off to put a dream in motion. I called the great Don Smith and asked how many bear plans have you sold? None replied Don. Which then I said .Not any more! SEND ME A SET! About 2 weeks later I unrolled a set of plans that 7 years in the USN did not prepare me for. After just awl and banging head i ask larry @ lazer lizard to cuts i think his first big kit. He did a great job and i was off building. Called Robart next about 6 maybe 8 months later a great set of legs show up and get fitted in. Look and work great. Life happen and plane sat 1/4 done till in 2006 all rc shied was loss due to theft. Move ahead 2017. Im sitting in my basement and see a set of plans in the corner. So i bought a scroll saw sander few other tools well here I am 70% done frame up and no legs....yet I do have people looking into the gear but.. I'll get her in the air this year. So Im here to show off a little, look for help, a little.. taken advice a LOT. So let's hear it if this was your build?
Motors
Servos
Receivers
Gear telemetry
Transmitter
Any thing else ... Here are a few pic

B.B. Weber built one years ago,sadly Weber passed about five years ago but the club still has the plane
I’m sure there are members that might can answer any questions you might have
Install as much power as you can ,I believe he ended up with four lazer engines and had to fly at 3/4 to full throttle
And I believe it was close to 100 lbs
