I had so much fun with this model early this morning that I ran 5 batteries (5 Flights) through it and unbelievable flight manners!!!
Completely as it came out from the box and I did not have anything set for expo, however, a little more UP elevator travel would have been nice to avoid the dreaded nose over on grass landing but, for some reason the last two landings (not on Video) were perfect as I found a shorter patch of grass and brought her in with a little more airspeed and she did not nose over.
I am SUPER HAPPY and PLEASED on this model's flight characteristics that I am going to keep her exactly like she is now. The Retracts really are not missed as the STOCK Fixed gear wire does not stick so much out and you can hardly noticed the gear when she flying, at least comparing it to others like the P-47.

Just like to say that this is the second time I have participated in the Indoor Fly-In hosted by those from the Embry Riddle Aeronautical University at Daytona Beach and right next to the Daytona Race Track.
I have been slowly getting into the micro RC Airplane models and every year they come out with newer models to enjoy and marvel the micro miniature Electronics and control systems.
Okay, like to share a few pictures from my experience most recently at Eagle Indoor Fly-In from this past Sunday, September 18th, 2011.
A few Pictures that I took with my Point and Shoot Digital Camera (Canon PowerShot A590):
I brought a few models to sell and did not get too much attention since I came sort of late at 10:45am and did not setup my own table at 11:00am
Needless to say, what happened was that yet another model found it's way to my car!!! It was not one that I brought with me to sell, either!!!!
GravesRC is one of the largest Hobby Stores in Central Florida and they hosted a nice Swap Meet Sale with Tables and all items in the store was 10% Discounted only for today.
