8'' L-39 EDF in Action!

Hi,

this is the first real flight of the probably smallest edf jet ever. It took me a while to sort out the technical issues, but it seems like I am at the point of optimizing the performance now

WOW! Impressive - and flying at dusk, too....great lights....but you're nuts, man!

How fast would you estimate that it was flying? On landing it looks like no glide at all at slower speeds....I'd have to have to hunt for it if it went down...it's hard enough finding big planes where I fly!
