Took my Vulcan out for her first full system test today. Did some fantastic fast taxi runs.

All my concerns about lack of power with my EDF choice vanished today!

Despite choosing some thick balsa, the total weight including a couple of 5000mAh 3S lipos came to just under 4.5Kg and she was off like a rocket. I had to fight to keep her on the ground (which was important as I live in the centre of London). Happily I managed to build up quite a crowd and a teacher from a local school had asked me to do a talk for the children and all the children watching want to build their own now!! Result!

The tests came to a natural end when I taxied it into a car, minor wing damage... Easily repairable

I will post some videos as soon as I have uploaded them.
