Thanks Whatala!
I wasn't having any luck downloading them from the web site. Yours came in just fine. I printed out a tiled stack of papers at 105%. I plan to re-draw some of it and wanted the extra bit here and there the 5% will give me.

No. On an outrunner motor you just reverse 2 of the 3 power leads to the ESC and it runs backwards. You also turn the standard prop around so the curved side faces forward.

Those colors are just beautiful in the sky. Well done. Saw a lot of loops. Have you tried any rolls? Be very high the first time. Will add video to the begining of this thread. Thanx for sharing.

As some of you know I actuallly enjoy sending my kits to far flung places.
I have two going to Cote-d-Azur today. ( France )

The Guys in Malta, an island south of Sicily in the Mediteranian sea,
asked about shipping and I discovered that my packages were too large to
be sent there. So I sent them the plans instead.

Below is a copy of their reply post to me, with embedded utube Video link,
showing their very nice work and flying.

Here is the post from Malta:

The footage is part of a film that was shot and transmitted on our Local National Station last week as part of the 1st April jokes hahah.

Looks great! Does it really fly that slow or is the video slowed down? It's very smooth.

Pete, my 31" flys very fast compared to my 62". The 62" is smoother too and appears more graceful. The 31" is the sports car and the 62" is the family sedan.

That's interesting because Dan's 31" is faster than my 23" but then again I could run more prop. I'm only running a GWS3020.

My 31" will fly pretty slow too. I was pleasantly surprised to see I could slow it down as much as I do.

Robin Fly Guy

This is my first time using the threads, usually I leave it to my friend Jono, so here goes: To Otto, first of all thanks for the info I requested during the building period, it was a great help. Yes the Guy does roll very well. It also flies inverted and also loops. The difficulty with this type of `plane` is in the vertical since there is no rudder to prop hang. The Flyguy is overpowered since I`m using a Turniggy D3536/6 motor 1250 Kv with around 490w. The prop is a9 x6 and can pull the flyguy verticaly from take off. The CG is 2cm back from the actual point. Regards Keith

Robin flyguy

Dear Petefoss, regarding the vid of Robin, Yes it does actually fly quite slow as shown in the video. I was using only half throttle most of the time except when getting out of trouble down low. and in reply to MK no I havent forgotten to raise the antenna since I fly the Robin on 2.4ghz. Thanks anyway, Regards Keith.

Keith, my bad! I played the video again and it looks like it's a conversion as I now see both the 2.4 GHz antenna AND the FM telescopic one. The silver "stub" was what caught my eye the first time.

Yes MK. I notice that you have the Crow syndrome >>> going after silver or anything that glitters. Ha Ha. No offence taken my friend. Regards Keith.
