Hey Mark, thanks for the reply on the paint question. Sanding recoating more sanding stop it!!! Don't they make something that's foam safe in a spray can???? Remember I'm the the guy who would rather fly than build!!!

I like landing on the snow, soft is good!!! All of the electronics are well protected and the engine being on top make for a snow proof plane!! I have a couple of videos when James comes home I'll have him post them. Are you going to fly with ailerons?? Simulator is a very inexpensive one made by Dynam its a six ch. model that's all it said on the box twenty bucks delivered.Seems to work quite well flew a couple of slow fliers with ailerons last night it acted allot like the sky surfer. I also tried a couple of jets and my raptor is without question a whole lot more control reactive. Only complaint is it wont work with my mac but it works fine on James's pc.

yes i am gonna fly with the ailerons i have no trouble at all with any plane on my sim and tred them all the turbine jets are kinda hard as they turn so fast but any of the normal plane seem to be easy and Pete said it flys like its on rails i take that as it does not roll as bad i have some heli experience and i have a quad copter i can fly well i know they are not planes but i think ill be ok(or i hope ill be ok lol) cant wait to see the vids.BTW how old is James, my son is 12

James is twelve as well. You should not have any trouble flying this plane it does fly very well. Just bought this computer because my pc died and I'm having trouble getting the video to download. I'm not ready to give up on it just yet.

It was pretty overcast that day and the camera isn't the best but something is better than nothing. James and I plan on making more videos I'm going to pick up a new camera soon. The hay field fliers series perhaps LOL

well me and boy got out today and upon first launch it does dived into the snow(my fault the control was reversed)second try it took off like a bat from hell was very very smooth to fly,i ended up turning down throttle to about 25% that seemed like the sweet spot at full throttle it really hauls azzz.Flew it 4ch had np at all controlling it. Flew about 10 min(no gliding) only thing the battery was a little warm after the flight and took about 30 min to cool down.May get a 1800 mah for it but i have to say it is a 5 STAR GLIDER for sure and for a person that never flew a plane before was quite forgiving,this may just get me away from helis for a while it is alot less stressful flying then my helis took a vid but not very well will post it up in a sec

That's just a little to far to trailer the sleds for a weekend! The town I live in is about the same size.
