This kind of makes you want one of those big beavers.

Check out the straight down elevators with the leading edge flaps up and the ailerons as spoilerons. The nose down taxi at the end is cool also.

I'm about 80% done with mine. Should be a big beaver maiden this Saturday.

Reminds me of those guys who fly 1:1 Super Cubs in Alaska and land on about 20 feet of "runway" on top of mountains and such! Fun!

Wasn't that the same bush that grabbed your Vyper, Weaser?

Congrats, Phil! I never kept track of the flights on my 42" Slick, but I think it must have been a few hundred.
