3DHS 65" Big Vyper thread

Here is a new thread for the 65" Vyper. Looks like we have Hi-jacked the 46" thread. LOL!!! Let's post here for awhile on the BIG "UN! I think that I'm going to try 5S and a light set-up for this one. I've already got a GR60XL and a number of 5S 5000's.

I'll do a build in here this week, finish by this weekend. Plane is basically finished, Scott has signed off on his last few changes, we'll start cutting wood soon.

Now that I have the 70" slick almost all paid off, I need to start budgeting for the 65" Vyper and/or the 68" Velox. At least I will already have batteries for them.

Just got back from looking at Scott's big Vyper up close. Gorgeous airplane. Very light weight for the massive wings/ailerons. Bummer to see all the repairs he had to make right out of the box. Can't wait to see it fly. I think I'll definitely be trying to figure out how to scrape enough money together for one of these.

Wow, A 65" Vapor! How Cool is that!

Oops. I misread the title.

Well, a big Vyper sounds good also.

(How about a big Velox sometime)?

Ok, now I don't feel so bad about not preordering a Slick. I was looking for a larger Aspera and I think this will do it.

BTW, After the new Velox, I think that that I'll fore go the 46" Vyper and look for one in this size range.

This thread is worthless without pictures

-Note- The fuselage covering scheme is a repair job after UPS manhandled the model enroute. The current plan is for the scheme to be identical to the 46" Vyper in the same colors. Also considering a red version. Thoughts on that?

that sounds like a good idea, with red and white recognition stripes like you have on the 103" extra.

You could make this plane in brown and it is still going to get purchased ....

Kirby might not be able to control himself if you put out a red one!
