Hi Thanks !

There's a second (good) video coming from today's flights

On the one above the esc overheated a bit and that was kind of an emergency landing.

On today's first flight I ran the pack almost empty (actually I have a very safe high voltage cutoff on he lipos) - so that was another emergency landing with a full 180 nice flat slow turn with no power left

The next video should show the classic Me-163 takeoff, flat first then up to the visibility limit at a 70 degree climb angles.

On the second flight today I was having so much fun that I smoked the motor, ignited the 100A esc and set Galland's feet on fire .

All is well though and I am getting a new motor !
