Good.

IMHO... if you are not crashing, you are not flying enough!

RE: 23 crashes...

"Stinky"? The way it flew, it should be called Sugar Fish.

Sweet!

Outstanding!

What's the weight and span? Is the wing construction similar to the fuselage?

Hi, here are more details

Wings, 6mm depron ... red line = fold line.



Carbon spar ... and squashed redline for easier bending



I had to short carbon stick, so the tip of wing has a depron spar



Fuselage with depron spar in center



Pendel type elevator ... capable of 90 degree angle










Wingspan 135cm,
Fuselage length 86cm,
RTF weight 350g

100% expo on elevator


Need some fine adjustments, and of course some training on control sticks
