Very Cool!

Hey, nice pics. I ordered mine last Sat and am looking forward to flying her. How do you like it so far, have you flown it yet?

Thanks,

Dennis

Dennis.

It's quite stable and an easy warbird to fly.

I'll post a video of maiden.

Still flies very well.

Mostly propeller. The rest is very sturdy.

Be warned that the tail wheel position makes it easy to tip the nose and break props on stony tarmac.

The scale tail is quite tall, and hitting a small pebble will cause the nose going down and scratching the prop.
Try to avoid rocks.


I fly from rocky Tarmac too.

Oooh! Got it!

Strange was because I was looking at the HK Spad.

I had a bad take off hitting a pebble with the tail and nosing over at almost WOT.

The firewall took the brunt and now I need to do some surgery.

Yours?
