Had to edit the video on my wife's Mac, not sure why it ended up on the vid twice, or the random clip of where I went kitesurfing in Venezuela. Already working on my second set of blades now I have a bench belt sander. Hoping to build a Spyro next as I really like the look of it.
Cheers,
Simon

Chris,
Yes mate, kind of felt heavy in the air. I added a second Lipo for the lights and I think that made the difference.
Need bigger blades and a bit more 'ummmphh' to carry the extras, have drawn up a MKII version but have no time to build at the moment. Still kills a bit of time at work in those tea breaks.

Regards

Good show Rich!
Just curious, what is the clicking sound in the video? It sounds like you're flipping a switch but my guess is that the lens cap is flopping around.

Don,
Its Debs flicking the zoom button, she flicks it rather than pushes it!.. but I don't complain as I got her out on the local park in the dark at 9pm!

10 years ago it wouldn't have been to video my toys! (I wish)


Regards

Very good work Debs, the flying wasn't too bad either! Wow it was bright, did it have a 12V car battery strapped underneath or what? I have a feeling that we might see some more night lights at Winterton

Lets hope so Chas!


Had a good day again today with the Fire Fly.

I have decided to move this one on so its up for sale to fund a MK II version, only the second model I have ever sold!! I'm keeping the radial and the LED's!
Its well worth the money if you compare a Rotor shape kit to it, and its bigger.

Bill,
Glad it goes well for you, nice flying and good video work by Chas


But, I do have a question!

WHY IS THERE A YELLOW BIT ON THE TAILPLANE?



MKII is now being constructed a touch bigger.
