i have died and gone to cobra heaven!

oh my goodness! i just flew the potensky cobra and well eh..... MAN IT IS AWESOME! i have to admit the first 2 flights ended in the dirt, but man on the 3rd flight i didnt even know what was going on and i could pull a harrier and some snap rolls and vertical axial rolls. The thing would climb straight up while it was doing axial rolls! man i love it! i think i snapped one of the carbon rods in the wing on one of those first two flights, but i think packing tape will work just fine to fix that.

I have been watching a buddy of mine fly his cobra around the feild quite a bit., and I am impressed as well. I also have seen a budy of mine fly his cobra into the ground quite a bit. and I must say, I am impressed as well. Folding prop, so you dont have to stock up on a half million extra's. And some really crash resistant foam.

Not only does it fly and crash well, it is also resistant to hangar and car mishaps. It is my favorite plane to keep in the car for unplanned flying urges.

I agree with everything said here.... I to was plowing lots of ground intill I made one change that I is a "Must do" I put some floresent green tape on the bottom of the wing so I could tell the top from the bottom. I marked it out with masking tape and spread thin layer of GWS glue that I had laying around and let it set for 10 mins and the tape sticks fine.........

Since adding this I "Almost" have not crashed anymore.... Putting togeather the Potensky floats tonight, I will keep you informed...
