Arrma Senton 6s (Typhon/Senton Hybrid)

This was my 1st scratch build. A little frustrating, but glad I did it as I really wanted a Senton 6s and had most of the parts laying around.

Challenges Faced
This was my 1st true build from scratch. Sure, I stretched my Typhon, but that was basically removing parts in whole and putting on a LWB chassis. Truggified my other Typhon........easy peasey! Upgrading a few parts and throwing a 4s esc/motor in my Infraction mega....no problem!

This was def a challenge for me. Frustrating at times ("Why won't this part fit!?!?" - "I swear I had this part/screw!!" - "Where the eff does this go???").

Most time consuming part for me was identifying screws to use. Some parts have screws that, well, "This fits, I'm gonna use it!" 🤣Going to the exploded view of the Typhon or Senton 6s (depending on which part I was putting on), finding the screw or part, clicking on link to get size or part number, digging through my JennysRC screw bag and my own large pile of assorted screws, measuring them (I suck at eye ballin' measurements), etc.

Def a process. Next time (IF there is a next time lol) I will meticulously go through the exploded views and account for every little screw and piece to ensure I have everything.

I will NOT binge watch new shows, watch football or drink/smoke too much while doing it. Would have gone a lot faster! lol
