Here is where I am on the RC RG version of the space transporter, upsized wing and wing placement for CG reasons of course, 38" long, 23" wingspan, 10.25 oz rtf using 24mm E-6 single use motors, 1/2 ounce more using reloadable. Flew just great, with a 1:25 flight time and nearly hands off. Stickershock is working on the text and wing/tail markings for me that I've shown here scaled to fit my wings/tail. Here is where she is at with some sharpie and vinyl details mimicking the flavor of the space transporter but altered to fit. I'm leaving this one white because I didn't want to add paint weight, it would add around a half an ounce if I painted it gray, maybe I'll do a second one later that's painted.

No wind and blue sky this morning with the moon directly overhad as I circled , it was pretty ideal.

Well sir, I'd say that looks fantastic. Can't wait to see her all dressed up. Great job!

Here's a video from this evening, I overcorrected on my first flight and then put some down trim on for boost for the flight you see first in the video.

Impressive flights! She likes to glide...........from engine burnout to touch down I had the first flight at 1:13, the second at 1:11.
