Surely you can't B.Ceres?

Samotage has just taken a call from his good MRS to inform him that a rather large package from Soaring USA has just arrived.

I checked out Woody's Cere's today. Great looking design. Trileron wing tips. Ample tail boom section, but slim up front. Needs a ballast tube set up, if you aren't in to just the wing ballast, or want to go max. Really high quality molding....going racing?

And the unwrapping has begin. This is a very Big Ceres. It's not the F3F version Mr T has, I needed to Git some NUTS, so I got the large size. It's truly a big, awesome toy. It thought I'd lash out, and build not only a slope version, but a kick a$$ 3.5 kW electro version. There is enough kick in that sucker to scare me...

Must send my thanks to Bob and Annette at SUSA and Jiri at Baudis. This order had a bit of a drama... the original order went walkabout when the UPS bozo collected the wrong box. So Bob pulled a rabbit out of his hat and Jiri pumped an new order out in 2 weeks. You guys rock!

So now samotage has a whole bunch of gear in his shed, and he will get building. Stat.

Sam,
who has tested the fit in his sportscar.

Hey, go easy on Sam's Big McCeres!

Awesome stuff - just the thing for Charman Rd (on a quiet day).

With that setup, you can fly it out to help with repairs on the international space station.
