Ikarus ShockFlyer Nemesis - Building & Flying

I wasn't sure if I should post this in the 3D forum or in Foamies or in Park Flyers, but I've gone for 3d as I hope it's a 3D plane (more on that later*.). No doubt the mods will move it if they think it would be better somewhere else.

I haven't seen much about the new ShockFlyers on E-Zone / RCGroups, so I thought I'd start a build fly thread - If its been done already please tell me

This is what the postie brought to the door this morning. Box is almost twice the size of the previous ShockFlyers (I've only had one, an Extra which is now well used and due for retirement).

The back of the box shows the full range, including some I hadn't heard about. The SU-27 is already available in the UK, but I haven't seen the F3A, the Otter or the Cessna. I like the look of almost all of them (bad news for the credit card ) but the Cessna looks like one ugly bird .
