Isn't it cool when flying something that was once just a thought?!
I see HMT has an orange prop so I'm guessing GWS powered right?

oooh, lets see if I remember the specs...
Weight: 230 g (8 oz)
wingspan: 112,6 cm (3,68 ft)
cord: 17,5 cm (6,9 in)
length (incl spinner): 70,5 cm (2,31 ft)
IPS-DX-A with 10*4,7 prop (The BEST)
7*250 mah batterypack
2A GWS esc (ISC-50 or whatever it is called, hehe)
did I forget something?
if so, just ask
Yeah, it´s realy cool to see the plane fly when for some weeks ago you only saw it in your mind
The plane has changed the looks drasticaly during building, hehe
I build as I think it looks right, hehe

Very nice Philip,
I'm impressed that you got the weight down so much.
I might have to try the retract thing on my Zoot Scoot. How well does the gear hold up in the grassy field?

Yeah, I expected the weight to be about 290 g but I´m WERRY pleased with the 230 I ended up with
I did make some ROG´s from Gras w/o problem, I had ful elevator in the first few meters then it got flight peed and it climbes out werry well...
I´m so pleased with this machine, total building time from first drawing to finnished plane i about 5 days
Now the GWS P-51 is the next project

What's it covered with Philip? Must be some pretty light stuff to come out at that weight.
Whenever I try and make a wing that light it just warps on me.
