Flybaby

Maybe it will fly this time While i'm sitting here waiting for the post office to get done kicking some kit's coming my way, i'm looking at a Davey sytem flybaby i built years ago. Never did get it to fly(way to heavy) i figure i will try again,so i took the boat anchor .05 can motor and futaba combo rec esc out,and put a park 450 hitec rec. and 25 esc in. Well that cut almost six oz. out and with the lighter weight of a lipo. and more power from a brushless motor maybe this time it will fly Plus with the weight savings over the old nicad's it might even fly nice. And yes i'm bored,this ohio weather sucks!!

Have not got too fly it yet,will have to wait for better weather. After taking all the weight out i had to put two 650mah batt's in the nose to get it to balance,very tail heavy but it's still lighter than it was
