Thank you David.

It took me about 1 hour to complete the whole thing. Very fast since no Aerofoil and wing comes in one piece.

Today I tried this outdoor with lots of winds. Still I could find my way! Nice model and next time I will go for the full sized version using a CD ROM Motor.

Go to the post you want to add them to. Click on Edit in the lower right corner. When the gray editing dialog box comes up, click on Go Advanced near the bottom. That will bring up the same window you used to make all your posts. Click the Manage Attachments button to add the files. This is the same way you did it when you added pictures to your other posts.

By the way, I just moved to Windows 7 and so far I haven't seen any differences inside RCGroups. Thank goodness .

Thanks again for this excellent design, David.

Make sure you downloaded the file you want to post, then you can re-post it as potshot said.

Nearly done... i know, took longer than should , been away for a few days, will be done ready for weekend. To do, connect controls sand fuselage then finish color scheme.

Good catch, domil. The files to post should be on your hard drive in a place where you can find them when going the Manage Attachments part.

I liked the video........ those are some bright lights. I am not too sure that I could handle flying at night as I have been known to park a plane or two in trees during the day............I doubt if it would be any better if I were not able to see the trees.
Thanks for posting.

Nice looking build, I have one of those small HK motors and a cpl of small servos. I think the small wot next will be on my build list.

What size of prop did you use? I am thinking maybe a 5X3?
Thanks

Wind is a problem on this side of the pond also. When I have time and the weather is cooperating I am having a lot of fun flying my 30 inch WS Wot-a- Fokker. Yesterday afternoon, after readjusting the down thrust on the motor I flew a cpl of batteries thru the Wot-A Fokker. I got brave and turned high rates on for the control surfaces. I did my first ever Barrel roll with a RC plane. The Wot looked great doing barrel rolls. It was not nearly as scary as i thought it might be. I am running a 1300kv Emax 28-22 motor and 9x5 GWS prop on 2S Flies very well with that combo. I tried a 3S with the same prop motor and was quite impressed with the speed. It will go verticle. However I think the prop is being over revved as I hear that "whistle" sound when it is wide open. I am a bit afraid that the prop may fly apart causing a problem getting the plane down safely.
i am thinking that an 8X6 prop may work better on 3S. Any comments or suggestions for a different prop?
THanks again
Stan
