OK here is the video of this evenings flight....again it's a cool gray dark evening so my GoPro does not do well in these low light conditions....anyway I did call out the Immelman and a "Reverse" Immelman?.....Got to fly with a large P51D gasser "Miss America". I botched the landing here.... thought I had enough speed to cut the throttle......uh don't do that next time. So I just had to take it up again and land it right....roll out is still wonky but I'll get better.

Oh no....not another home movie??!! Not too many people remember the super eight movies back in the late 60's...where our families were filmed with such exciting activities as grandpa asleep in the chair or....the little ones chasing the dog......those were the day's - LOL

Here is flight two from last evening:

Ya and I am beginning to see.....I am not used to these larger planes (larger than 1200mm) as they seem to fly slower......this is NOT true!! In fact I would proffer these larger birds are flying perhaps faster and of course have much more mass...while at the same time - it is a little strange to me is that my FMS 1400mm Bf109f ; A6M Zero and F6f Hellcat can seemingly fly slower than the 1200mm series planes. Reynolds affect on laminar flow with these larger wings may be coming into play on the bigger planes....

Bottom line is.....I think I am preferring the larger planes (at least 1400-1500mm) over the smaller 1200mm or less ......

I will also note the availability of these larger 1400mm planes flying from the same 4s batteries as my smaller planes is wonderful

never flew one but the 900 mm look the worst they look like you have to nail the throttle all the way all the time

I don't bother removing it with my planes. I simply spray the primer undercoat right over them. Saves time and is less hassle.

Yes it's great. That's pretty much what I always use for an undercoat.
