Well my phone takes video in mp4 format which my work pc doesn't recognize. I didn't think Youtube would care but it does.

I'll try webshots and if that doesn't work it will have to wait until I get home.

There are MANY free players that will handle mp4, for example: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html.

I got it downloaded to my webshots album. Yes, I hit the light pole. It was breezy and with the wings folding it got a little sloppy! But I can glue 'er back up.

It won't embed, so here it is.

Maidened the 380 this afternoon. I love it! I think it flies better than the DF-11. Slightly heavier but a slightly bigger wing, too.

Does anyone else have to add a lot of up-trim to the elevator to get it to fly level? Yes, this is after I've adjusted to get the proper CG.

Also, is anyone's decals coming off? I used plenty of water and let it air dry for a few hours. I wonder if the foam should have been wiped clean with water beforehand. Maybe some oil on the foam?

Would not hurt to clean the foam. I have not had an issue with them falling or coming off (over 10 models so far), But I have had to remove some for re-designs and they do come off easily. Sometimes too much water stays between the decal and foam. I found that pressing the decal down working the water out to the edges does help in the long run.

Just put in the order for the XB-70(yep they have it on their site and you can order it the ?Concorde will be coming soon ) I plan to use the box on the bottom and put in two 30mm GP F-86 fan units in it and watch it go super sonic!!! I like the new site and nicely done good job.
My DF-380 is almost complete and the decals are holding on but there's some of the edges starting to peel off but I put some coating on top of it and it holds them down.
I also used the night vapor brick from a slightly "crashed ,banged up vapor" and even got the lights off of it(you have to be a good surgen with steady hands,but they're just taped on the wings and fuse and you can remove them without breaking the wires) and think I'll put them on the DF-380 ....now that will look cool for "night flying" I found

There is an XB-70 but it is not in the same class as these little airliners. It takes a brushless outrunner, elevon mixing, 4-channel, etc.

That is correct and that's why I'm getting it it's bigger and fit right in the perimeters of what I wish to do. If there was a micro version of it now that would be something interesting to work with to for just one 30mm EDF!!!mmmmmmmm ideas going through the engineering department par of my head
