In between rain showers, managed to get a few minutes flying time. wanted to see how the little thing would cope in gusty wind conditions, and also probably the only chance i'll get before we get hit by the really high winds as a result of hurricane katia.
well, it's finished, and flies pretty well. still a bit wobbly, but that's me as a noob, but slowly getting steadier as more flights are logged!
there has been some alterations, namely the arms, as i found the 15mm was causing me to obtain not so good lift, so dropped to 10mm, and all the better for it! also a slight re-design of the landing gear, which was re-designed as was bending the bolts inwards/
overall, i'm pretty happy with it, and would not have been possible without.....
