Well - The plane is complete - came out extremly light - only 15.25oz!!! Amazing - I didnt really do anything to lighten the plane, either. Very suprised with the addition of the monokote and balsa that it came out so light - that weight was AUW as well, 3S lipo included.

Cant wait to fly tomorrow morning - COG came out about 3-4mm behind the wingspar - is this ok?

Here are some pics.











And here is a picture of my GWS collection. The pink beaver is my girlfriend's plane. Boy, she's gonna kill me for that comment.

This is my Beaver I built, to teach my brother how to fly. Picture isn't great because I took it with my phone camera. This was his 3rd day flying, and he soloed. Made some perfect and some decent landings too. The Beaver is a great plane in my opinion !!

Hallo NJ Flyer I just finished my BEAVER no photos yet.
But that F4U with the brushless flys great. You remember it right.
And I finished a new ZERO

Nice ! The 3 blader looks perfect on the Corsair. I like the flame motiff too. Did you fly the Beaver yet ? I like it better than the slow stick, because it gets pushed around less by wind, but still nice a relaxing to fly.

Tell me how it flys and what your setup is; I just got one this weekend, but so busy it'll take a while to complete it.

Any feedback will be usefull and interesting to me.

Tusk91 as long as you have your CG right youor going to love this plane and your setup is going to pack a punch!

I remember my first flight with about the same setup! I hand launch so I was all ready moving when she left my hand I like to take her up about 100 feet and then just do some basic turns well I was at 100 feet like right now! I did alow pass at about half power and then I took her up wind and turned her around started a low pass and when I was like 100 feet away I slowly gave her full throttle! she was screaming scary fast to me I pulled her stragight up to a quick 200 feet of stragit up and did a couple victory rolls you will love it!

If you have a coumputer Radio set you throws for low and hig low to get up and then one your there use highs for quick rolls and stuff.

What brushless setup are you using with your spitfire???

By the way I have my CG set at 60mm from the leading edge of the wing with a slightly nose down attitute.

New 109

Here is my new 109 I put together to sell to somebody. It is glassed with 1/2 oz cloth and came out pretty smooth. No electronics yet. That is for the buyer to figure out. Enjoy.
