One of my fave movie theme songs (<--Avatar), obviously... And, an excellent rendition in RCAV form!... ~Kevin

I thought y'all might enjoy it. The flight was actually over six minutes but I had to cut it considerably due to the short song. There were quite a few more spins and stuff but I just didn't have enough room to get them all in there. It's just something I put together for fun as I didn't have much else to do today and wanted to give the old WASP a little stress testing. I'm thinking about making the tail moment a bit longer to make it not quite so "bouncy" but then again it wouldn't be as responsive either. The aerobatics were putting a pretty good bend in those wings at times. That 300 watt motor almost sounds like a glow engine. It's kinda weird.

Another great vid randall.

So considering it's still in one piece, I take it passed the stress test.

Yea it did pretty well. I had never wrung it out before and yesterday was nice so I got her up high and put some loads on it that it'll probably never see doing AP. I did find out that it hesitates when coming out of a spin and doesn't like inverted. But man oh man that little 300 watt motor has some guts!
