    Hello Guys,

    i blew up Bobs DC-6B to 149% and built it with durobatics foam 0.05in thick using 4 x Parkzone/Kyosho Minium Cessna 6mm geared motors with cutback props and the PZ/K Minium brick to control the whole thing :)

    All up weight is 47g, flight time about 5min with the stock 70mAh single cell lipo.

    Video of it in fligth here (a bit more wobbly than normal as i had a rudder servo start failing on me... and actually failing in the end)
