Thanks Tom. It flies really good. I'm tempted to build another one and make it pretty. Looking forward to your next design/ build.

I`ve got a decent video uploading to youtube now. I need to shorten it a little, then I`ll add a link. It was a little buys at the field today, but I think the vid is better than #1 overall.

Got in 5 or 6 more flights today in about 3.5 hrs at the field. I`ve increased the timer to 3.5min so my flights are about 4 min long. with plenty of full stick. I may try some 5ah cells next time out.

Right now it`s 11.5lbs AUW, and is easy to fly and land. I don`t think another pound of lipos would hurt it`s flight characteristics much at all and could give 5min flights for sure.

Lee, I'm thinking of a serious H32 bashing from a slightly damaged airframe.
I need to repair the wings so a bit of trailing edge thinning work, swoopy tip work all the way around, gear doors. I'm thinking of cutting the hump off under the rudder, make it round again for a thinner fin and fillet. Best part is trying a 12s 70mm monster fan. If it comes in at 8-9lb with a Little power it should be a burner!
waiting on that vid!

Sounds like fun Tom. You might also think about making the intakes a little smaller to reduce drag. With 300+ efflux it should be very fast for sure.

I started building another fuselage for the Mini Spot that would hold 12s, but then the wings not quite big enough.

I`ve found a set of wings in my stash that should work well, so I need to build a fuselage for that wing. It won`t be pretty, but should get the job done.

The video edit is processing right now. You Tube is pretty busy on Sun PM. But I`ll post it asap.

I thought on the PC it would be better, but there`s a big gas motor running and hogging the runway so it wasn`t as good as i`d hoped. Lots of wind noise too.

I`ll post it for the hard core edf watchers like me.

This would have been a better video, but the camera angle was low.

I know the videos aren`t very good at all. It`s about as good as my current set up will deliver. I`m going to see if I can upgrade stuff. I like a good video and want to deliver some eventually.

Not that bad, I had a couple turn out like it, I can still hear and see the speed and a silhouette!
I need to make a habu fuse look like this!
