I've not started building it yet, still some other parts to arrive, etc, but did take a few pics of the hull.  Unfortunately I can't find the cable to transfer the pics from the camera to the laptop LOL. ::)  Instead, here's a pic of the battery pack that was in the email confirmation.

It has 8 LiPol cells at 5000 Mah with a 29.6 v rating.
Smartphone?  Why not use that?

Maybe it's worth getting a replacement USB cable which don't cost that much...  Hope the build's still going ok though.

Thought of that o.c except it's not that easy.  It came with a proprietary USB cable with an odd type of connector at one end, can't find a replacement anywhere - even mfrs don't do it any more as camera is discontinued years ago. :P   

As said earlier, still not started the actual build yet as some parts still to arrive or get...

To all concerned with this thread.  I moved this topic to here ('Radio control projects discussion' under the new board 'Hobbies and pastimes') from 'Off-topic discussion' under 'Blag-it lounge' as it was more suited.
