Hello

What a extraordinary flight, especially the departure!! I want to hope when it touches the ground, it does not undergo too many damage.

hows this for modding a PBF

This started out as a pizza box build but somewhere my mind wandered away into the spadosphere and this ended up on the build table

still working out some flex issues and currently the CG is a half inch off in the wrong direction *it's crazy nose heavy, imagine that.* but so far shes only 3 pounds, with a .40 it should have more than enough power to bore holes in the skies.

I think that to be possible with a .25. Simply cooler flight! And perhaps to try to make with 100 or 150 grs of less

Fabrice,

I like the simple fold up fuse. The plans confirmed it was just what it looked like.
Simple is good!

No, wings 4 mm too.
In France, difficult to find 2mm, then I use of the 3 and the 4mm only

Thank you Dave,
Now I try to make less heavy and a symmetrical wing, to test more speed?
