    Carbonette 19 R/C BG/DLG

    This has to be the most fun I've ever had with an R/C airplane. I bought a Whipit two years ago and liked flying it, but it proved very fragile, especially in the nose, and the battery is prone to ejecting. So my nose-less Whipit sad in a corner until December, when I stole the brick dangling from its nose and put it in this thing. The nose won't break off this one so easily, and I've yet to eject a battery.

    Better idea...the instructions for building it. Start around the 44 minute mark.

    My kit arrived today, and the parts look great. I look forward to getting to work on this as soon as I get NARCON in my rear view mirror!
