Nice to see another Giant. Sorry we did not meet last weekend. The Ellipse looks very good. How did it fly?

I would say that is a piece of Sam's Giant for sure.

Next time...

Hi Keith, the Ellipse flew nice, perfect cg & trim on the first launch. It will take a bit of getting used to for me though. It felt a bit disconnected to me, like a model with too much expo. It was basically a new unflown model, came with old Volz Micro Max servo's in the wing and I'm used to fast 94761z's, at least I hope thats what it is.
Tim, and all the guy's, wish I could have flown with you Saturday & Sunday last week, looks like you had a good time !

Are you insane ! I hope you have a cinder block to fly, or better yet, a 3m RG15 piece of Tungsten !
