Nice build job. Looks like it flies pretty good too. Just watch out for those huge down drafts from the HVAC vents in the ceiling (LOL). :eek:

Looks good Rob, i know Its terrible thing to say, but it might benefit from a gear drive like the butterfly's. It looked like you had difficulty getting it to climb, which would go away with a gear reduction.
Makes me want to pull my classroom fighter gear out and make a slow flyer again :)

Ha! Not a terrible thing to say... It should fly like an Ultra Micro Vapor with a GB05. I'll have to try it whence I can sus one up. So, get goin on that slow flyer, Derk :D!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess your single or your wife is at work. My wife would kill me if I did that in the house.:D

I'm not sure where she was for that. She stopped shooting the videos for me after I let the plane get too close to her face.
