.....GoldFish.... 2012 "The year of the Fish"

It all started....
At the "Slope Cafe"

Yeah,
Another Fish.....
So what will set this aside from any other fish?
Well, first of all, it's
Gold!
Secondly, the design will originate from the fertile creative minds of:
Greg, aka "Bakkie"
Sean, aka "Smiley"
and myself....
(The "Alchemist")
Oh, and of course all the threads posted on RCGroups!

This is what we have right now......


GoldFish (2 min 6 sec)

Clearly it's going to have elevator and rudder capable of 180* rotation as well as a skinny tailboom. Looks like another contender in the flatspin race

So many questions... so few witches...

Oh no!

Vimeo sent me an urgent message regarding GoldFish!
Due to the over-load of thousands of hits they experienced on their system...
I have to reload the vid!

I swear I saw it there!!!!

Hmm... I reckon you zany guys have been on that stuff grown between the rows of Mealie Meals!
In my mid 20's I lived in Durban for a while- the local stuff then was called "Drakensburg Gold". Very good for original thought!
