Thanks guys! It was a nice surprise! And best of all...its no hangar queen. My big purchase this weekend was a bunch of lipos for the Electrolyte to fly back to back without recharging. Time to start a new airframe!

Thanks for the video link NC. Something about the camera made the Electrolyte look bigger than it really is. Atleast it looked shiny too !

Glad you got the recognition you deserve. I find it vastly harder to build a small airplane.

Yeah, I guess its all relative. It is definitely a bit larger than the GP F-86 and UM Mig....but its also twice as fast.

Hey Jack, thanks again for the help on those lipos. I was able to do 5 back-to-back flights today on the Micro Electra. Its really nice to not have to charge between flights! The hottest the motor got was 85 F. The heatsink is really doing its job!

The Basin was blue skies, no wind, and not crowded at all. I was expecting it to be like a busy weekend flying day but it was the exact opposite. The best part was no traffic on the 405 fwy thanks to MLK day .
