The weather was finally 96g airplane calm this morning, I got few good flights on the latest version, I'm very happy with it, the weather looks good for the coming week so I hope to get it wrapped up.

FINALLY!!! the weather has been good enough to do some proper testing on this model and I'm very happy with it now. Later this week I hope to have a test build of the kit done so I cant test the fit on everything.

Added video from the recent CAF fun fly to the original post, sorry about the glare...the hanger we were in was not cooperative for filming I'm a little rusty on my pattern flying but I was very happy with the models flight performance at the fun fly, good speed range, nice rolls, GREAT snaps, very sharp pull outs with no wing rock, and of course no coupling issues. Its more than maneuverable enough and slow enough to be flown in the standard sized gym, and of course no coupling issues. This model was 92g minus battery, in the video I'm flying it on 2s 160 hyperions(2x 1s packs plugged into a Y)

Thanks for looking, I have a couple pre orders from the fun fly I have to get painted & shipped then I will be finishing this kit up.

Chris

Looking good there Chris!! I really wanted to twiddle the sticks on your new pattern plane, but knew it was the only one you had, and did not want to bend or break it Maybe next time. Mike Morales gave me a Decathlon that someone gave to him, and I have it ready for Sandy. She is starting to practice with ailerons on the Sim now. She did pretty well on the Mini Velox we put together. Maidens tomorrow on several if the wind is down. Good luck on the new kits. Gotta finish one more before I can start the latest one from you. Best Roy
