Here's with Virgin theme. Sorry for jerkiness (Youtube conversion problem), she flies much smoother in real life:

Virgin America A320 (3 min 29 sec)

Hi demon, thanks! Here was the first attempt (now scaps foam) with props and bad airfoil and not enough dihedral:

Great job, that's a beautiful plane! Looks like it flies great, very scale.

Is the 18 oz. the flying weight?

Thanks all for kind words!

Yes 18 oz. flying weight with single 800 MAH 7.4 Lipo. Tried 1000 MAH and didn't seem to effect much.

Well done, very nice!
The rotation and initial climb-out look very scale and where the video smooths out you can see how good it looks in the air.

I reckon these small scale jets and commuters are potentially quite difficult flyers, really nice to see people having success with them.

Cheers
Rich
