Flying my latest GWS model... DHC-2 Beaver

Here are some pics of my latest GWS model, the DHC-2 Beaver. This bird flys very nice. It's powered with a Ferigo 13T, geared 6:1 cobri box, and either a 9cell niMH 1050mah pack or a Kokam 3s1p 1500mah 11.1 pack. She's fully glassed so she's on the heavy side, but handles excellent. I can get about 20 -30 min. with the lipos and usually get about 10 mins. with the niMH packs.

Nice pics Leafy, hope you enjoy many nice flights with your DHC-2. I have a 2nd Dumas Beaver to build, but I've started thinking about fixing the first one, it's not that bad.

Gotta ask, what's the deal with the propeller? It looks like it's on fire in the picture with the 'A close one...' caption.

The prop is a GWS 9x7, one of the orange ones. I guess the flame effect is just the way the pic turned out, although with the 1500 lipo she could catch fire every now and then... hehehe
