I know! Wish there were some 3D foamy manufacturers in NZ. But thanx for the effort!

What gear are you using to get that weight?

Nothing really special: the usual 4g blue arrow servos, no name esc, schnurzz, 2s 450mAh and a graupner XP 10 rx.
You could build it a lot lighter but I used stuff I had lying around, under 115g should be possible no problem.

I like the kiwi on your kiwi steve

I'll be doing one of the Competition soon. On my website you can find the video of the Loco. It is rather old though, almost a year. It shows the v1.1, the 1.3 is the version sold now! Fuselage went through quite a few modifications for best possible knife edge handling.
