Freewing Flight Design CTLS

I just had my first flight with this plane. It took almost full throttle to get it up a little... I thought the prop was on backwards with the lack of power. And I am no per or speed freak. I like slow and scale. But need to make sure that I can get out of trouble... Having a little extra there is good to have...

A nose over on this maiden... No damage. But tried it again yesterday, and didn't get off the cround, a tiny pebble -- or one of many, caused some bounce. Prop strike, then endo! Slight front gear damage...

Totally cool! Looks exactly like mine!

I love this thing!

I just need to get the Power/prop combo just right...

Pretty soon, I will meet you on a CTLS tread. After all this time talking about our Wilgas!

I love that pic that you posted.,

Thanks!

The model looks almost exactly like the full scale bird! If it was just a little smaller and lighter I'd pick one up to fly indoors...

Yeah! It would make a super cool micro model. It's hard to find anything but micro warbirds these days. So few civilian micros.

I painted the spinner and the exhaust pipe. I replaced the prop with a Master Airscrew 8". It took some modifying of the spinner.

I got the camera in the CTLS cabin.

Kind of missed the line up of the dirt and gravel path on the strip, and came to a pretty quick stop.

Quasi-almost nose over. Lol!

I removed the front windshield and added magnets to take on and off. Installed some of my own dashboard detail.

First flight with the magnetic windshield and new dashboard detail, ended with a bit of confusion. As I forgot which way the wind was blowing (again) and landed with the wind, for a speedy approach and a broken front landing gear.
