Guys ...please don't post at the old thread .... this will be the new site for all Albatross questions....Management has done such an excellent job making this whole thing new , we don't want to p*** them off...Thanks....

Allthough the Albe continues to be our most maneuverable plane in the hanger, a competitor has risen to the challenge..... Today I built a Shoestring (actually 2) from my own plans (that's weird ?) and made it into a "3D" plane ..... flat airfoil ,profile fuse with crutch...lots of aileron and elevator (no , I'm not ready for a rudder ,that's why I haven't flown my chopper yet) a DCM-189/C/10x4.7/2cell lipos.... will power this thing at first .....If I can get my hands on the new APC 12x 3.8 for some testing ,I'll have to switch to the D gears.... everything is set UP at 0-0.... just like the Albe ,except this looks more like a "plane" than a spaceship....hahahahaha
Is anybody else having as much FUN as I am ?????

GPW, just shoot me a PM by Clicking on my name and picking that option. That way you won't have to download anything. Thanks for taking care of him Gene!!

All done.

This is a copy of the albatross wing and a P51 stretched in "Paint".
