    Very cool!
    Am I missing something though? The only plans I found were the two photos of the whiteboard dimensions. I saw nothing about how to affix the tail, the motor, prop, etc… Wishes there were more details on the build. :(
    Thanks for posting though, might be fun to experiment without plans.
