Rc Bird

Hi everybody, I designed and built a swift rc airplane. It has a wingspan of 68cm, weighs 210g and is powered by a Turnigy 2211/2300, 3s 800mah lipo and 5x5 prop.
Made from Depron, Kfm 2 airfoil.
It flies extremely well, even in bad weather conditions. It is now online as a free download plan in the german Modell Aviator magazine:

Here is a video:

I like it. Any chance you can post the link here when it's available to download the plan?

If you open in Chrome, it will ask you if you want to to translate for you. Mine will auto-detect source|destination language. Not 100% accurate grammatically, but darned close enough to be usable.

Nice plane/Bird... Not sure when I will get around to building one, but it sure looks like a winner.
