It is just frustrating at the moment.. england is wet and windy every day..and our indoor session is not for another 10days..

have a good new year
Ok, now that I think about it your plane will be slower. Sorry about your weather, mine is snow and 10 mph wind. The place I fly at is only a indoor basketball court.

Its been maidened outdoors.. sorry my camera went dead so there is no video.. but it flys fine and its top speed is a lot slower than yours...
Mine doesnt like the wind much but will be fine indoors...

EDIT.......The larger area on mine makes for a slow and smooth cruising flight indoors, loops are tight and easy , it will do circles in as little as 6 feet, but the roll rate is sadly slow...so on the next version I will have to vary the wing area to control surface area
I have also found a much lighter material than the pretty xmas foils... white 12 or 18 micron carrier bags, which heat shrink at 110 degrees

100 have you seen this thread, it would probably make quite an improvement with your wing.

Just looked through the thread, lots of good info in it.
My wing can only fly outside in a 0-3 mph wind, over that and it gets bumped around and changes direction a lot.

It's the ball bearing mod that makes it a whole new motor.

thanks, I saw that and wondered if it would get ride of the vibration at high speed, it is easy to the the vibration is caused by lack of bearing support.
