Area-51 SPEV

Presenting my Quest Area-51 SPEV saucer. Although this resembles Quest’s original Area 51 Saucer, it varies slightly from the original. This is a SPEV (spare parts elimination vehicle) kit based on a crate of saucer tops that Quest found lying around. The bottom section is redesigned since the original parts were missing. Thus, although really simple to build, it is not RTF. It also doesn’t have the wire ‘legs’ and is not pre-decorated. Like the original, it flies on 18mm motors. I pondered modifying it for 24mm motors but I decided just to build it stock. Its 1st flight will be on a C6 and the second will be CHAD staged, D12-to-C6.
