my firebird stratos (flight1)

hi all,

new to the forum,just a little about me,i am from ireland and had planes years ago,things have changed quite a lot in recent years,it's unreal the advancments in tecnolagy!
i got back in to r/c flight this christmas and started back with a stratos,first flight out was a sucess in low wind,i love the plane,it's very windy here now at the moment so things are quite with the flight time...unfortunately.
can't wait for wind to calm and get out again,i have a deposit paid on a glassair so can't wait for that one.
anyway here are two videos i done,first flight and second flight.

i am looking forward to getting back in to flight this year,will go to local clubs also here in ireland,it will be nice to get a break from racing the 5th scale cars for this year anyway.


flight #1 was a very slow affair and nothing too exciting so i decided to post flight #2 and the take off and landing video,i recon i didn't go too bad for first time back in ten years.it's an easy plane to fly in fairness,that helps,IMO i only reccomend to take this out though in very low wind.


flight #2

flight #2 stratos plane going a little mad with it (4 min 53 sec)





flight #3

take off and landings



firebird stratos -take off and landing practise! (3 min 32 sec)




cheers
flight punch

flightpunch34,

I don't think you made an egregious mistake posting here. This is a park flyer forum; the Stratos is a park flyer. The Stratos is a beginner airplane; others discuss beginner airplanes in this forum. Draw conclusion.

Good luck on future endeavors.

I think it is fine. Stratos if a parkflyer. So no problem. Welcome.
Remember there is a search option on every section. so you can enter a name, plane or whatever you are searching for, the search feature will turn up a number of places the word you input on threads.

You are fine, in my opinion.
