Nice Build !!! love the graphics.

That would make a nice Decal set ... not sure if we can get florescent colors to print ... might have to go to cut vinyl for this one.

Thanks Guys for like it....

@WMParkflyer , thanks for the awsome plan.
it might be too heavy if you add vinyl to the airframe for coloring. i preferring best way is use a 1,5 bucks acrilyc spray paint but more jobs to do.

Beautiful plane!! Yes that is a good setup for the Mako. You can even kick it up to a 6x5 prop for more speed!

I just use regular CorrosionX, but it sounds like ReelLube will work also.

Smoke7 use what aircontrol posted as I'm not so sure about the electrical properties of the one you posted.

Decals available any time soon?

Mako is done but very white Yes, I could paint it but would prefer to get a decal set and go that route. Any decals coming out soon from WMPF? Love the Coast Guard scheme by Rasterize, will that be available to buy at some point? Thanks in advance, Mike

I was wondering if those with suitable skills are abe to produce the Mako as a model to fly on the Real Flight 6.0 simulator? Seems that would be an alternative to poor weather and long nights.
I will pick up your request. When I do builds for RealFlight, I do build threads, similar to this thread. You can follow progress here.

Just having lots of fun flying the Mako and trying to get some hovering in,, until the wind picked up a bit.
To get this into more of a full 3D hover, do I need more elevator and rudder authority? Ideas? Tips?

RC Mako fun. (2 min 46 sec)

Nice flying but man that was a bit spooky. I was begaining to wonder if you were going to be able to get the plane back to you. Thanks for the video. I still haven't got to fly mine since I put the 3 axis stabilizer on it.
