Steve, this is really a super little airplane. Maidened it this morning. It was really a total non-event. Take off from grass is great. Tracks straight as an arrow. The lift off is very realistic looking and climb out is nice. It cruises around at 1/2 throttle with no problems. I must have shot at least 6 touch and goes. I love being able to do touch and goes in the grass in my back yard. Low and slow is a dream.

The power setup is as follows:

Motor - Grayson 2212-10
Prop - APC 7x5
ESC - RichModels - 18A
Battery - Electrifly 1500 mAh 15C
Receiver - GWS 4 channel
Transmitter - Hitec Optic 6
Weight ready to fly - 17 oz.
Just in case you can't tell, I'm all

Now I guess its time to put on a finish. If I don't chicken out, the finish will be a sort of Coast Guard scheme with white base color and orange trim and black accents.

Tony
