So, this weekend I took the opportunity to try to fly my AM40 (trainer, high wing).

E-Flite poer 46
E-Flite 60 AMP pro ESC
E-Flite 3200mHa 4S LiPo
Futaba R617 RX
Futaba 7c TX
AM40 - balsa

First take off, doesn't looks too bad, until the tree.

Then, It just wouldn't fly. After analyzing the wreckage I've found that on the first flight the canopy was not correctly sealed up front, that allowed some air to go into the fuselage.

The repairs I did during the night, didn't correct that, and I even tried to fly without it. Call it a brain hiccup or whatever, I just don't know how I thought that it would fly.

Without further ado, the compiled videos.

Accidente del AM40 (1 min 37 sec)

It's not the neatest, it's even ugly. I hope it flies though. Any thoughts?

Before installation. Chinese parts.

This is another project, smaller, less ambitious, but will be less painful to crash!

I just placed the tail controls. They look like this:



I'm having trouble getting the elements that I need. It seems that since I'm from Argentina, I can't be trusted on the Classifieds section.

No hard feelings though.

I'll try to upload more pictures of my plane.
