Mine is on the brown truck, arriving Friday.
Equipment will be:
Futaba 14MZ (or 8FG if I feel like programming it)
Scorpion MKIII 4035-530
Castle ICE2HV120
Futaba BLS255HV's on cyclic
Futaba BLS256HV on rudder
Futaba CGY-750
Futaba R6203SB receiver
LiFe Source 2100mAh 6.6v battery
FlightPower EONX 30C 6S 5000mAh batteries (2 for 12S)
Radix 105 tail blades.
Main blades - TBD (3 different sets sitting here, will try all 3, 1 normal, 2 sets FBL)

Based on build information from Bobby and Brian at MA, build should be pretty quick. Hope to have in air on Sunday.

Here are some pics of the box and parts. I just got back from the helifreak funfly and only worked on it for about 2 hours. What I noticed is this will be a very quick build! I estimate less than 5 hours for the airframe. This is due to the low parts count and intuitive design.

The parts are so nicely made and the finish is the best I have ever seen. Take a look at the pics. It does not do it justice. I should complete the airframe in the next few days since I can only work on it a few hours a night due to family obligations
