How did this go? i just got a smooth operator and was considering running a similar setup. What pdb did you use? How happy were you with it overall?

Very nice build!!! very sexy!! ;-) How about your flight time? do you use it for long range?

The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
