V2 bone stock, flew amazingly well - probably the "sweetest" flying airplane I can remember flying. Actually flies better than I remember my trainer flew. There is quite a bit of dihedral, of course, and it is largish for a foamie.
After about 6 batteries, however, things are starting to loosen up: the rudders are ridiculous and are so flimsy, they can't possibly be doing much or they would just break off! The hot glue gun is warming up as I type
The nose gear is getting loose and looks skewed - I swear I was nice to it, but it looks like it needs some kind of bracing. Also, I just took off the nose gear door before the first flight because it interfered with the gear up cycle.
Received delighted comments from everyone with one of the senior members remarking how realistic it looked.
I tried doing high speed ( ) passes, but it wouldn't go very fast.....
