I've never built one myself, but I've seen the kits, both disassembled and fully built, and they aren't a terribly hard build. They are, however, terribly hard to destroy. I've known Andy (the kit-maker) for about a year now, and no kit he sells is less than top-notch in quality and durability.

I've also seen several of the 7.5" Thumpers fly, including one he built himself, and they've flown very well. Bear in mind that while they are simple to build (maybe not as easy as a E2X, but what fun would that be?) they are also HPR birds and need lots of room to fly, as well as larger motors to put into them.
