    Re: Badan Vertigo 2M Build Thread!!

    He has to put a kit together first Dave. Told him no rush as it is a winter build.

    As for scheme, not sure yet. I want something different from the typical Vertigo scheme, something edgey.

    You are going to like it Dave, the plane fly's amazing! I still can't get over how much different this plane feels over all my ARF's. Knife edge at half throttle, it will even climb that way. Spins...

    As it sits now. The scorpion on the leading edge of the wings is going to be removed. I do not like it there.

    The cobra for the cowl cut outs, and the scorpion for the RCGF stinger motor.

    Weighted everything, fuse, wings, motor, 5 servos and batteries. Looks like I'm going to come in just under 19 pounds. Was hoping for lighter, oh well still 5 or 6 pounds lighter than my Raven.

    Hopefully you get out this summer!

    How much of the turtle deck is to be cut off at the front angle? I can not make it out from Badans instructions, is it 440mm or 410mm. I don't want to screw this up now!!
