Yippee!
Flying Mirage

Man at work flying colourful Mirage. This time wearing cockatoo smugglers to make sure some saint with glowing halo won't report me again. Yesty flying at the beach I got double bonus, I heard this noise and there she went, Air Force Globe Master coming from the south at twice wingspan height heading towards Coffs right over the beach, what a sight!, J.

Yes, its FF one I got for peanuts on special some time ago. I did full build log somewhere, its fitted with 8S, 3.2Kw, 90mm power unit, fixed gear for simplicity. Logged over 200 flights now mainly off the beach. Salamander spotted colour scheme to make it more unique, Regards J.

I took the mirage photo from the video of your post, " jason's flyfly mirage".
So the mirage on that video is not yours?
It flies great though :-)
