Youtube some vids. I have always wanted one. You add a little reinforcement tape and it is an over 100mph plane. But still capable of some mild gliding once you power it up to height. Windy day fun

Well I got 6 packs through my 2 57" SCs today. The winds were 15 to 20 MPH. I would have run the 8 additional packs that I had sitting there charged but the wind started to get too turbulent and unpredictable for safe landings.

It was a very successful day though. I spent the whole time practicing my KE Spin entry to make them nice and reliable. I figured that if I can reliably enter a KE spin in 15 - 20 MPH winds then the calm days will be a piece of cake. It was funny how far up wind I had to start to make the bottom of my KE spin come out close enough where I could still see the plane

No video because I didn't have any willing videographers.

I will be back in Ohio the last week of July. I will bring a 70" Slick and see if I can fit a second 70+ inch plane as well. Probably not with the family in the car. So I will probably have one 70+ inch plane and a 57" SC.

Yes indeed, you will fit in well and having the 70 slick around will be cool if you can bring it. The velox will either be rebuilt or reordered (fuselage) by then I am hoping.

Had the pieces of the bottom laying all over the table to make a template of what I have to rebuild.... Pretty much all is gone from the bottom of the cowl to halfway back (sigh).

I have my 46 Vyper on the gurney as well as the Addiction there too. I will knock those out just to get them the hell out of the way so I can start the 68 rebuild....

That is going to pinch my plan to get the 47 Edge built as planned... Ugggggg. So many rebuilds so little time :-)

I will be flying my Mini Ultra Stick by time you get here :-)

Sure hope you can make it.
