This a great little item. Sanding block is made from very high density foam and features fine 240 and extrafine 120 grit papers. This block won't deform and cause waves in your project like those cheap hardware store sanding sponges.
Greetings all, I wanted to tell you all that we really like the A.R. My firend built his very similar to the stated design with a 5800 KVA inrunner. I put a small 2100 kva outrunner on mine that turns a 5x3 prop. They seem to have just about the same amout of speed and authority. Fantastic design and really fun to fly.
I'm the friend Randy mentioned. I first bought the AR as a home for an unused GWS brushed motor that came out of my Pico Stik. It flew great on that motor, but I wanted to see what it could do with a brushless. I bought a Feigao 1208425L, running a 450mAh 7.4 lipo, a 6 amp speed controller, and either a GWS 3x2 or 3x3 prop. It's an absolute blast to fly. Above combination seems perfectly matched, and I get about 4 minutes of pure fun.
I don't now Randy or Frank but I love this plane. Setup w/ Medusa 5300kva, tbird 9, 11.1v 700mah lipo, GWS 3*3, I'm not sure if I'm hitting 85mph, but it's rock solid and really fast. Sounds like a turbocharged mosquito buzzing the field! Now I just need to get braver and keep it on the deck.
Great little plane, and fun to build for me who has only built foamies and ARF's. My setup is a Turnigy 1230 4500 kv motor with 3x2 prop, 6A esc , HXT500 servos and 3 cell Nano 450. Setup worked great, allthough I didnt break any speed records with it.
I decided to get back in the hobby after way too many years. Purchased a couple of small ARF “beginners” planes with poor results at best. Almost gave up, but was inspired by reading a copy of “Balsa Builder”. I built the Gym Ripper to learn the b...

Just finished building my 3rd micro kit, had fun doing this kit like the other 2 kits I built. The Fly Baby I built is a kick in the*** to fly, I just hope the new kit of the Heath LNB 4 is as much fun to fly. so if you like the challenge of build...

I have been trading your (micro) kits to a young man (12 years old) for yard work. I think I've created a new model builder !!! He loves it. Another friend, who only flew 3/D worked together with me building your "Helium MG2" glider. We couldn...

I bought a SHAFT 400 and had a great time building it. Flying it for about a year… Lots of fun. Great plane. Love it!
