AC-130U, (K. Sparks-based)

Here is some video from an I-phone (Manny Rivera) of my AC-130U after changing the batteries to 1300 mah x 3 + 1600 mah x 1, FROM all 2200 mah on the maiden flight. The change saved about half a pound. Flew much better

Much Better Video (courtesy Joe Carbone)

Got a new HandyCam to get better footage of this thing. Had to chop into 50 MB pieces though...

Flew a dangerous mission at dusk to supress the enemy and to capture more of the essence of the AC-130U...Flaps worked very well. Winds were light @ 5mph. Flies better now that the props are painted silver

This was the 6th sortie flown...really like the plane. Very glad that I built it and would recommend the build to anyone who is interested in such a model of the
C-130.

Be sure to check out the RC Groups build thread of the original K. Sparks model and you'll see mine toward the very end. A few other guys are building too.
