A very good flight Ernst .
The slow speed of the aircraft, helps clear control.
How did you get such a low weight?
I hope you don't have to spend on the Centre of gravity many euro coins.

No Mark, you have to buy direct from: http://foamtoair.f3ascore.com/ Delivery is pretty fast though and postage isn't silly money.

I've got 3 of them sitting here I've got to paint and build for some friends and all of them arrived undamaged

Winfried and Ernst make a great team Mark. Ernst designed the Disney and its produced by Winfried. As Gary said above postage costs aren't silly like us sending parcels outside the UK.
My Disney(s) arrived within 2 days of them being shipped

What would your 2nd motor be after the Glavak ?

Gary what did you get your motor down to? as i have
been using the pulso 2203/34 ( axi race copy) in my flame3d's
for about 18 months now and love them was thinking of using
the pulso 2203/52 and has i have all the cnc machines to hand was
thinking of trying to make it lighter but reading the thread most people
are pushing the Glavak ? just looking for a bit of input

The Glavak is a pretty amazing little motor Mark. I cant remember exactly the figures but mine coupled with the YGE4 esc and Glavak prop weighs something around 15g with the tube mount. The throttle response of the Glavak with the YGE esc is stunning, incredibly smooth and has a very low "tickover"

The 2203-52 with the large Glavak prop is a great motor and thats what Connor uses in his Silent Angel, and hopes to use in his Disney too.

The Axi with a Glavak Prop and a lightened turnigy 6a esc will be around 25g and there is no way you can claw back that 10g in the airframe build in afraid. The other issue of course is the axi has way too much power on a 100g model so you need to play around with throttle curves. Even The Glavak has too much power on my 90g model around centre stick making the torque roll nervous to throttle settings.

So the Glavak has it hands down for me except for the cost! That said I'm getting another Glavak later this year. If you can hide the costs from an ladies in your life do it, you will not regret it

Another big plus Mark is flight times! I use Hyperion 180's and can get about 6 minutes of F3P schedules from the Glavak!
