Which Witch?? Gymallo conversion...

I have built the Indoor Gymallo, the Park Flyer Gymallo, and converted my SlowStick to an overgrown Gymallo..all with more than excellent results.

Due to the season I decided to convert my Slowmallo into a Flying Witch. ( My other Witch is OS .61 powered ). Again, the Gymallo design did not let me down. First flight was early this a.m. in near darkness...fantastic! I had to concentrate on orientation in the dark sky but the flying was perfect.

This eve I made some minor adjustments and went back out before dark for a much longer flight. My wife got a couple of shots with the camera. I had to lighten them up as the sky was getting dark fast. Again the flight was perfect and the very light touchdown was perfect.

This is ver 1.01 for me...many small things can be changed for realism but the concept is very sound indeed.

The service and aquired friendship of Bob at the Gymallo factory is way above normal or expected. This is an excellent adventure in my r/c pastime. I'll be ready of a little Halloween flying!!!

Thanks, Just got back to it and added plastic googley eyes and red hair. Got a nice "toy" wig at a $1 store and it cut down and glued on with a little hot glue.
