Sounds great Brent.Yeah your so right on the size/wing loading thing. When handling the airplane, picking it up, moving it from place to place I think no way..it's a brick, if it fly's it will be on the edge..But the flight characteristics are just amazing. I have flown models before that gave a feeling of flying on the edge and one false move will result in tip stall or falling out of the sky in some way. By the time the T-38 finishing it's first lap around the lake bed I just knew from how it responded that she had forgiving trainer like qualities. My landing was no flap and no wind and she landed like a feather. Put in some flap and a 10MPH breeze and yeah I bet it would just float right in.


I think the photo of it leaning up against the house puts things into perspective on why it has those qualitues...it's HUGE!!!
