That looked like a picture perfect take off! Was that you flying?

Hope you rebuild it!

Yes, I'm the guy with dark blue jacket and tx in his hands
Non the older ones! Hehehehehe

That is me rolling in one video and taking off in the other one. It was fliyng perfect. As you can see it needs left trim.
So i took my eyes off to look at my radio and because of its tendency to go right i believed it almost inverted its route.

Anyway it's rebuilt now. I'am waiting oracover from UK. I got a big discount there.

Joe, I told you yet, you made very good job. The perfect take off was achieved just reading to your tips and following your drawings.

Whirlybird is a good team!

Glad you got it rebuilt! Now but some color on that thing so you can see where it's at please!

Leaving it white saved me some hours of paint job.
Against the sun all that i could see was black

Today I glued the horizontal stab. Now i'm really ready to cover.
I think on next week end i will have to fly my goldberg ultimate.

The other option is to have the half fwd fuse covered red and the aft one in white. Thain i won't be albe to apply the colour scheme i posted some posts ago.

My bad! Well, add some color somewhere and you'll be happier. Lately I've been adding a different color to the top of my autogyros and different on the bottom. I can then tell if it's rolling away from me and towards me!

Keep us posted.

This is the last day of the year. I could not leave alone my DAG, so before preparing for the upcoming party, waiting for the new year, I picked up a bit of paint and sprayed my beauty. The balsa one, not the skin and bones one!

This is the result. Still have to paint the aft fuse and vertical fin's tips.
Hope you like it. If you have any question or tip, please tell them me.

Happy new year.

Finally I was able to fly with this. I have still some problems when looking at it when it is far away.
I have to move CG back because it is nose heavy.
