Seems like it flys pretty decent in the first vid its surfing the wind in the other 2... if your having difficulty finding an indoor place to fly.. you can try undergroud parking garages.. that what i do.. gotta becarefull though as its much easier to damage it there than flying it outside in the open..

Thought about that I would be hard pressed tho to find one that isn't full to Cap. of cars and in order to squeez every cent out of the space they make it very tight parking with only enough room for cars to pass one another the good news is I found on my way home today a building that has all the windows blown out and wide open inside. I am gonna call the number on the sign there as it looks like construction has halted on the building maybe they will be nice and let me fly inside. I could fly inside the warehouse I go to One of my customers but I'd have to dodge forklifts, racks and pallets LOL I do fly my Helicopters there alot but they can fly in a tiny space for the most part.

I don't know what you did but you got it spot on. That's much better than the last time we saw it. And it looks like you're getting a nice flight time out of that little BAHOMA (sp) battey. Good job Joe!!

You get two cookies!

EDIT: I'd like to see that Stang fly again if you can make it happen.

Yep its awesome time I think on a new battery I may even do better this battery has been charged more than 60 times now. Im totaly happy with the flight I have 2 more profile planes to build but have allready started on my Full fuse versions. I went back to basic flight principles. I did that on the zero and it flew perfectly on its maiden. I neglected to do it on this and the P51 and paid the price of have to remake both planes. From now on I'll slow down and do it rite the first time. I will also be make a post here in a few days on how to get these little planes flying and trimmed from start to finnish. There are a few things I found that will greatly help others.

Thanx brother I got the motor and actuator in the full fuse spit Im undecided as to put the RX inside or outside under the wing I was wanting inside to make everything nice and clean looking, but I dont want the battery ejecting into the body cavity.

LOL I Perfect nothing it just seems to happen all by its' self. This is and always will be a learning experience. I dont think think we ever truely perfect anything when dealing with such small scale things.
Heli have you seen the P51 video that plane is amazing in flight its pretty slow and I got it turning real nice both directions now.
