Multiplex MiniMag: Part II

This one shows it actually flying well. I switched from the HD prop, which wasn't working well at such low RPMs to a 10x7 APC SF prop, which is about perfect for this motor.

It's a little soft, focus-wise, but the original video was 28 MB. I couldn't bear to cut it down any, as my wife did such a good job. It'll have to do for now.

It is scenic, I'll give you that, but it is far from a perfect place to fly. The lake, trees, marsh, and houses are all bad places to crash. I've had to make more than one "Walk of Shame" through the marsh to retrieve a fallen airplane.

Also, one "Walk of Shame" through the woods.

There's strange wind drafts on account of the uneven landscape too. I prefer my club field and the local school fields for flying venues, but for convenience, just going to the other side of the neighborhood is hard to beat.

I too can fly just outside our house, but no lake...!! I grew up at a BIG lake and still miss it a little....

Matt: Thanks! It's nice to see from local guys now and then! I work just over in Northbrook. We should meet up some time. My work facility has great grounds on which to fly electrics. Drop me a line if you're interested.

I'm working Saturday morning on the weekend of June 3. I'll get out at 11:30. Do you want to meet there and do some flying? Drop me a line.
