Another First Flight Report for Speed Stick

I've had an rc car, an rc boat but this was my first rc plane and flew it for 20 minutes without crashing. I think it shows how well this plane performs and how lucky I am Left turns seem to be a pain ( guess I need the Boomerace enginemount).. but I corrected it with nosing up.. reduce throttle and let it nose over.. makes for a nice tight turn. Just to be on the safe side I tested it in a field with lots of soft grass.


JRXF421EX 5 channel
12x6 prop
8 cell 800 mah 9.6 volt
Castle Creations Sprite- 25 speed controller (Boomerace... remember my other esc caught fire... I took it back to the store and exchanged it for this one.. paid a little extra.. but it works pretty good)

I had another crazy Idea to make it easier for swapping batteries and to provide payload capacity... Cup a Plane anyone?

I have'nt flight tested it.. but seems sturdy and light. I should be able to add another servo to open/close a door for the cup so that bombs or paratroopers can drop free.
