that is impressive for sure. I looked up pricing one out and stopped with the main kit. $3k to start is way over my head. That would end up being a $5-6k project, if not more. crazy but man how cool!

Please do not misunderstand me .... its an impressive model 100%.

But I cannot help but feel something is wrong with the overall look ....... particularly cockpit glazing angle and nose ......

Yeh I know ... nit-picking !!

A chunk of foam to protect the tail cone during transport?

mmmmmmmm A Buccaneer Speed brake !! ??

BUT having your post - I went back to the video and I find it strange that before and during take off ..... its a pointed Concorde style tail (sans skid wheel but we'll ignore that) ..... On first landing pointed tail is still there .... but second take-off - the box has appeared ......

Is it some tail weight added?
Impressive but expensive.
