    This was a fun little build. I like the balsa frame. Flew it today for the first time. I think I'll modify the next one for a D12, or I'll design my own.

    Super simple to build these with 24mm motor mounts - I fly mine on 24mm motors or on 18s with an adapter.

    Yup, it flies great on a D12-0. Fun build and fun flier.

    My daughter and I have got to get one of these! We kept passing over them at Hobby Lobby and haven't seen them there in a couple months. :(

    It would be nice to convert it to 24mm power. Any tips and/or tricks on how to do that?

    By the way: fly it on a C6-0, or D12-0... it'll still come down right next to the pad. No need to go conservative with motors. C6-0 is plenty fun, D12-0 a bit moreso.
