Take off and land at Thanksgiving dinner table

Short video of my Plantraco Butterfly with a Square9 wing taking off from the Thanksgiving day dinner table, buzzes the living room then back for a nice landing.

Edit: Added another video of the Butterfly with a red polyhedral wing.

Wow, there is a Rob that lives up my street with a dog named Sheba also. No joke. Nice landing with the red polyhedral wing. Where do you buy those at? It almost looks homemade.

LOL, hope he doesn't have a wife named Michelle, that would be freaky! The airplane is a Plantraco Butterfly from www.plantraco.com. I modified mine with homemade wings.

Christmas version coming right up, my friend.
That 2mm landing roll was long compared to the Christmas version.
