Looks good! What's the span? You're gonna have to do something about those tail feathers though... don't expect much 3d as it is now...

The tail is what made me guess Ohio RC. Most of the other companies, from some time back, had changed to a more freestyle tail. Ohio never got into the 3D planes. They stuck to a more true to scale set up.

Its a Lanier 300 1/3 I dunno if I wanna try and convert this big puppy to a 3d ship or not I would like to lighten it up some I think im gonna strip it down completly as it has been built for a while but never flown I think im gonna go ahead and use 4 servos on the wings lost a one big one to flutter already this year.

I dunno what covering too use thought about fabric kinda heavy tho May just use Ultra coat whadda ya think

The wing span is 102"

Flies good. I need to put new batteries in it before it goes up this spring. I have a Brison 5.8 in it. If you want to lighten it use Kavan wheels (4") carbon gear and carbon wing tube. I have single JR servos on the wings. You may have a free plane but you will have $$$$ if you have to buy servos and motor. I won't say what I paid but your motor alone will cost you more.
