Let Minimoa

First off I would like to thank Etienne at ICARE for the great service and assistance with this amazing model. It was pleasure to assemble and everything fit perfectly. It is not cheap but the quality is outstanding. My all up weight is 21lbs with about 4 lbs of ballast required to balance at the 180mm mark.

Flying : she tows beautifully just go for the ride.
Elevator is very powerful and I would suggest not exceeding the recommended settings. I used 40% expo on elev. 10% ailerons. Get as much throw on the rudder as possible and be sure to use aileron diff as recommended. She tends to float a long way in ground effect so use of the airbrakes is required.

Cheers
Dean W.

Dean, the Let Mini is my all time favorite scale ship. It looks so distinctive, not just another white moldie. thermals very well and it's even aerobatic. It's also a great plane to fly in "dangerous skies", deep blue with no clouds or heavily overcast because with the sun shining through the covering, it's easy to see at altitude.

Here's mine on tow, photo compliments of Jeff Duhaime.
