I have a throwing arm which has seen better days and the 7.2
ounce per square foot is lighter than any sailplane I've studied.
That's what made up my mind.
Although I'll probably be changing the radio system later on, the
3000 foot range on the stock system seems powerful enough as is.
Does any one know how the controls are set up on the stock radio ?
Is it Ailerons and elevator on the right stick ? Throttle and rudder
on the left ? If so I may keep the stock radio system.
Winter's coming fast here in New Hampshire but even if the ground
is covered with three feet of snow and thermals are nothing more
than a fond memory, I WILL be test flying it when it arrives.
I can relate to your comment about winter arriving! here in the UK it seems we are having a permanent winter, and I have taken my sebart sukhoi 29s out twice in windy weather and both times damaged it! hence I have now ordered an F117a Stealth from Pete at Banana, which hopefully will be in stock soon and yes it WILL get a test flight too!
Regards Frank
