Nice! Any more info? Who's making it? The ailerons look fairly inboard and also quite deep. Any flight reports yet?

Locally made/designed model. Flew straight - no trim adjustments on the maiden flight. Using a Neu 1115 2D with 5x5 EM folder on 5S 1800 40C Zippy. It's a work in progress..

Radared today (Stalker) @ 186 MPH..

I have a youtube vid.. but the video quality is very poor. For some reason whenever I try to video this plane something happens to the video.

We will be demo flying this model and an El Nino at this weekends pylon race meet @ Pitt Town. I will hopefully be able to get some better quality video (might try a hat-cam).

Bullseye (1 min 6 sec)

The F5D market is really picking up in Aus. Bruces Summit, Adams got one coming and now the Bullseye.

Looking good! Some more pics would be awesome?

Is this going to be commercially available model?

Both the 5x5 and the 4.7x4.7 EM's are holding up fine. I even had an accidental start with the 4.7 on a table.. chipped the tips, but still working great! No odd sounds on the smaller props.. Didn't Voodoo work out that it was flap flutter causing the noise?

I think you need a Funjet with minipyro and 7X10 (!) - for a change of scenery and all that.
