Reno Racer in Colors...

Reno Flyer's,

Greetings, to you all in the field of 3D flying, your Reno Racer. As Watt-age promised it to be a fun, fast, 3D ship. The Reno Racer.

I got bored with the plain and sticker scheme, so I gave it the look that it somewhat needs... I have only been flying 3D plane for a month now. So, I ran into minor mishap here and there. I did my first roll and inverted today... What a thrill, as soooooon, as I got home, I pulled out my old paint, that I have left, from the TigerMoth days...

And turn the Reno Racer into this Pepsi Cola color scheme... Don't expect a good, near perfection paint job from me, for this Racer is just a test plane, just to see if she can handle the extra weight, beside the L wing already have dings in them... But number 2 will be different. I'm leaving the paint job on that one a secret for now...

Setup: 9.6V 400race towards astro 010.
prop : Stock, but will experiment in right prop. pitch for power efficiency.
