John Deere Skeeter 80

This winter's project was the skeeter 80.
It's all cnc routered by my brother's machine, so really my first scratch built plane.
81" wing span, 16lbs, all with a 52cc echo chainsaw engine converted to RC.
Lots of power with the echo, turns the 22 x 8 at 6800 rpm's.
The covering was done by my friend which he totally out did himself, almost didn't want to fly it.
Test flight went great today, flies really easy.

The cool thing about this plane, there won't be very many like it.....
