Having some fun with the Herr Mini-Sport(VIDEO)!

Well, I finally got some video(thanks to Tom for his filming duty!) of my buddy Johnathan and I flying our Herr Engineering Mini-Sports! Here's the link:

http://media.putfile.com/MiniSports

Mine and John's were expertly built by Wes(1987tc) and have the conventional rudder/elevator/throttle with the addition of ailerons. I hope to get some video of 4 of them in the air at once again like we did a couple of weekends ago, when John, Mike, Doug and I went up together, what a BLAST! Unfortunately, I forgot my video camera

Still have to get the steerable tailwheel worked out, as you can see with our not-so-perfect-landings. We love this little plane!

Wes, I kind of felt that way a couple of times, you can hear an "ooh"! followed by giggles when we got a little too close to each other!

Yep, I finally deleted the whole video and started over. I somehow was making a "looping" video. Made me dizzy just looking at it!

Had a great time flying the Mini S ! Wes as you can see they fly great thanks for the nice build work ! They do fly so nice as Mike Say's it's a sweety ! The little Ska tty with the GWS 8x6 HD really does the trick and pulls around 2 amps at 1/2 throttle and 9 at WOT.With the TP 1320 3s1p I bet it will fly 15 or 20 min !
Seeing this video reminds me how fun the little planes are to fly. Thanks to Ronnie's help and use of his pattern the trim work came out nicley . Love to see the top of the wing on a turn coming at you . Johnathan

BTW, someone asked me what motors are in the Mini-Sports; John's plane(yellow) has the Esskay 400XT from Hobby Lobby, and mine has the 20mm double-stator cd-rom from CustomCDR.com(ryanl2006 on rc groups. I can't say enough good things about Ryan's motors
