You might do better at Sea level.

At 6900' MSl You are doing very well indeed.

I remember taking a plane from Indiana to Colorado and it would barely fly
at the Boulder RC field. I really had to TWEAK the motor just to sustain flight.

What are the rest of the specs on the design ?

Really enjoyed those videos. Very entertaining. The scratch built looks great, clearly well engineered to carry that kind of weight. I had my boys out flying with me today too. But they had a nerf gun and we're getting incentives every time they managed to hit my plane on a fly by. Great having kids out having fun, and learning about aerodynamics all At the same time.

I watched these videos the other day on youtube. I was amazed at how much this plane lifted. I'm glad to see you posting here.

A couple questions...

Where did you get the CF tube from ? How long is it and how did you secure it to the "cabin".

How did you strengthen the wings ? Is there a CF tube in them too ?

How are the wings attached to the cabin ?

The CF tube is from eBay. I am not sure how long it is at the moment because I do not have the plane with me but it is secured to the foam fuselage with hot glue. I simply cut a big grove in the foam and glued in the tube. That pink foam the wings are made out of is pretty ridged. The only support is from the parking tape that covers the wing. The wings are just glued to the fues. Probably not the best way to attach them but it has worked so far.
