Looked good to me. The only yaw I saw was due to the strengthening crosswind above the tree line.

thanks for the kind words guys

first .... the powerlines 3/4 mile away , hedge i can live with lol the field is bigger then it looks in the video

i have no rudder on this plane , and in the turns i may be at 1/4 to 1/3 throttle just to show how slow this plane can fly

thanks

hehe, hard to use some Rudder then.....

Videos normally make things look faster than they are, but yours looked to land very slow. (even allowing for that 'opposite' visual speed error). Maybe some head wind..... or it is very light?? (or both).

The power lines looked within my flying range! LOL
I think I fly about a 300m radius typically (with 90mm sized jets). (600m "box", 150m height max I would think) (0.5mile approx)

when i take off you see the tree line in the background , the power lines are the same distance again from the tree line (so maybe 1/2 to 3/4 mile (no one hit them yet lol)

on that day the wind was 3-5 mph , flying weight with lipo just under 3kg

very stable and nice model to fly (ive only been flying 9 months) so i appreciate your input

Only been flying for 9 months! Well, that explains it then- beginners luck!
Just kidding- you fly very well.

Evo, if you were to build another one, would you make any changes, ie... retracts, flaps, rudder power system, finish...?
Reason I'm asking is, I'm building one next and I may go heavier finish/trim 8s jetfan power or light simple Midi Evo 6s
Thanks

I don't know if you saw this, but mine is "full-house" and glassed- weighs 8.5 lbs., 6 cell HET 1200 w power. See what you think...

That looks really nice too!
Just 1200 Watts for that AUW?? It did look a little bit slow, but still scale 'cruise' speeds.
I guess my Me-262 is much the same specs, 3.8Kg (8lb?) but 1800W - though flies at 50% throttle for 'cruise'.... quite a similar wing/jet design really.

I must say it flew heavy at that weight and soon removed the retracts (about 12 oz.)- that grass is just impossible (but good on bare feet!) I can't comment on the ROG from a better surface, consequently. If you are contemplating one around this weight, I think a 15 to 1800 watt 6 or 7 cell system might work well- I plan on re-powering at some point with an Evo or Jetfan.

hi bud

i would add a rudder (may still do that)
power wise is fine , i fly on a 4000 6s lipo which is as far forward as i can for the CG , may be on 8s you might have to add some weight to the rear.

retracts are holding up fine for 30 from hobbyking

just make sure you put carbon rod in the wings and beef up the retract mounts

dont need flaps as it comes in slow for landing

From my experience with FF kits, those junk plastic wheels will last one landing, at best.

You are almost right Herb.....
I thought the same.
But my F-4 Phantom nose wheels are lasting fine - though one did 'grind away' the tire when the lock nut somehow did itself up more and jammed one wheel!!
But other than that it is lasting very well - all use is on Asphalt (road) runway.

Mind you, on my F-22 (FlyFly of course) when it had 'ground handling issues' and veered off course strongly, at high speed on the runway (road), those lateral forces were too much and the hub 'exploded'.

But as long as they operate 'normally', as per a real plane would, they will be fine. (eg normal running, landings etc).
Maybe hard to assure that is always the case! hehe
