Cobra Racer maiden flight this weekend.

My Cobra Racer from Magnum Models will be done and ready to fly this weekend. Guys if there is anyone out there that has flown one, how about a report to let me know what to expect.

My Bluto is not far behind the Cobra Racer.

Those look pretty slick for a foamie. Have fun, and let us know how it goes.

I am really looking forward to seeing how it flys. I just hope there will be a stiff breeze.

I am also eagerly awaiting your report. How does it feel to be a guinea pig? We appreciate it though!

Not enough wind, only the Texas Twister was able to stay in the air for a short time. I didn't even bring the Cobra Racer, because we didn't even have a strong enough wind. It was only blowing 7 mph at the best, and then it would drop off. I am going to wait for better conditions. At least that way I can work on the Bluto.

Larry Blevins from Magnum Models said, "the Cobra Racer has no bad habits and is a great flyer. So I can't wait to fly mine.

As for feeling like a Guinea pig, well I don't mind it all, at least it is foamie not a hotliner with a brushless motor. And if it does everything that Larry Blevins says, I will be a "happy camper."
