My trolley idea didn't work out so well. Could not build up enough speed.
Got tired of monkeying around with that and just gave it a good toss. Flew great! Just needed two clicks of up trim. Very smooth sounding.

Weighed in at 1200g. I would guess it flying around 120?

Love the way it flys. Was easy to hand launch even with calm winds.
Thanks to Extreme- RC for recommending this setup.

Full throttle, run, (the faster the better!) give it a good toss nose up a tad. A good head wind would be best.

Well done Looks great, and it is easy to HL at 1200g too, full throttle, firm toss slightly nose up, you can even put a little right twist in as it will level out from torque straight away.

Oh yea, Extreme, I got an EF-16 from HP. I'll be using some of your advise when I build it. Thinking of glassing it. FYI they are on special for $29 for the kit only now.

Nice job Hotseater. That was quite a long flight. Seemed pretty fast too! Completely different sound than mine. Whats the amps and watts?
Hope to fly mine today if the weather clears.
