Also will the eflite 60-120 electric retracts fit as I have exstras?
While I haven't started mine yet, I did check and found that I CAN squeeze the SkyLipo or Gens Ace 6S 5000mAh batteries there.

Thanks jcdfrd...is there anyone here that can do a Doppler speed reading on that video, assuming he stayed on the throttle long enough.
Thanks again

also for doppler we need the ambient temp when you make the flight and then just have him make a straight and level pass down the runway 20' high or so, full throttle the whole pass. then it should be easy to get a good doppler reading.

He almost hit you on that first landing... Did give you some great shots, though... I don't know when I will ever get around to start building this one...

RugFlyer, can you find out what oleos he used? They look nice.

And that WAS a close call! LOL
And a very fast/hot landing too!
