How many planes is too many?

Here's a video that shows the second flight of this plane last weekend, flown immediately after the maiden flight that was shown in the previous video. It was still very windy. I pushed the plane harder since I had gained a whole 6 minutes of flight experience on the maiden flight .

Thanks to nac for doing a great job videoing with his iPhone .

I think your best bet would be direct from BestValue

Shipping to Europe should be more reasonable than to the U.S., and it's not that bad to the U.S.

Thanks, freesex. I see you're back to using your saucy name again . Yep, this plane feels very much like a balsa to me, but it can bounce like a foamy. It's the most feral 48" EPP plane that I have flown. I flew it again today; 3 or 4 flights I think. There was still some wind, but less wind than last week. It felt even better in lower wind. This plane is fantastic . Nac got some video today that I will start looking at now.

I was lucky to flew feda's plane in zero wind condition, I am sure you will love it more and more as the wind calms down.

Thank groovejet and nac for another great video!

Here's another one of mine, in a little less feral style:

Nice flying Feda....my kinda flying...lots of slow stuff. Nice save on the almost too low roller in the beginning. I feel like a little kid again waiting for Christmas to come ( can't buy it now...bought too many this year already....has to be a gift )

Feda, are you using the Hengli motor that you're selling in the power combo ?
If so, it looks more than strong enough.

Best flying foam plane I've seen...

Trying to get the build queue down, then I need a crack yak, then I'll look at this or the next generation probably by next spring.

Yehh nice flying Feda. Looks like it tracks really nicely for the bigger IMAC style aero's too. What's the opinion of the combo from best value? very tempted with this.
