My Bi-Wing Pitts Special - 31" Balsa Wood Electric Plane

Overall I was happy with the quality of the plane. One thing that I wasn't satisfy was
the original tail wheel came with the plane. It was a very cheap wheel with no steering function. I made some modifications to add the steering function, and I tested on the ground and it worked great.

As you can see from the photos, I used Red Bull as the theme of the plane. I bought the stickers from eBay. The sticker seller was in Thailand and transaction was fine and the stickers came in very well.
