Been tied up and didn't get to post this yet,the tom 3 flies and from what I can tell flies well.Saturday was less than ideal for the first flight as the winds where 10-17mph and kept swichting compas points!The tom broke ground at less than 2/3rds throttle in about 45 feet-no lack of power!There may be a rudder trim issue and more aileron throw is needed but all in all it seems fine.There is a short viedo I hope to post later.With the winds I called it short after about 2 min of flight time and dragged the right wing tip through the grass on landing when the wind shifted 45deg when I was a foot up.

Great stuff Rabidrue, I had no doubt it would be OK but it is nice to get the first one over. Looking forward to seeing photos/video.

rabidrue1, Thanks for the build. Did you use the same airfoil, or a different one? Also, what decalage did you use?
You mentioned, “There is a short video I hope to post later.”
Have you posted the video anywhere?. If so, what is the link?
