What.....................no guesses.......................... :shock: 8-)
Here's one more just to help:

and incase you are wondering about the label, a list of optional extras being added to the rebirth - Son of AXN

Okay.give in...........it's a 600ml PET water bottle, bottom removed and top removed at mid neck. I was going to use the heat gun to assist in shape forming but when I jammed the bottle over the nose everything fell into place. Reinforced tape to hold in place, cut out a cockpit area for battery access and it's as strong as new :lol: :lol:

I still have to wait for my spares to arrive, I've run out of servos and I'm waiting for servo extensions so I can run flaperons.
Even without flying it's a bunch of fun.............. :D

Compromising with out of control government is like living with a lion, sooner or later the bloody thing will eat you .

You accept the tyranny of the state when it's not being applied to you, when it is: it's too late.

Precisely, you will have to pray a lot before committing aviation!

I'd paint it brown if that wasn't such a hard colour to pickout from a distance.
It may not be pretty but it could be functional, much like something from Tupolev Design Bureau so I was thinking of naming it the TU-rd.

Did anyone try the single wheel under the fuselage?Did it allow the AXN to ROG?I'm not very good at hand launches,I usually end up back on mother earth!

Hi Quarry,

I remaidened ( :lol: :lol: ) my AXN today, 3 launches and 3 crashes with bugger all time between them :D . I will post the vid tonight (needs editing) but just thought I would let you know that I did a successful ROG launch using good quality reinforced tape underneath, it was a lot prettier than my hand launch (again in the vid) and only 60% throttle.

The end result of today -
gravity - 1
me - 0 (Minus 1 Rx, 1 servo, 1/2 AXN, crushed wing spar, ego @24%)
Love this hobby :lol:
