Aero Ace Scale Antonov An-225

Finally I picked up an AA jet at Target last weekend, and put the guts on my scale 14" wingspan scale An-225. On the maiden flight, it went straight into a tree. After some tweaking and re-attaching the fake engines that got knocked off all the time, I had it flying pretty good. I made it exclusively from foam plates and hot glue, and used Hot Wheels for the LG.

The sad part is that it only stayed up on full throttle, and was difficult to keep off the ground for more than a minute. It now has had its guts removed, where I am using them currently in experimental models as well as an EPP USS Enterprise.

It was definitely short-lived, but I plan to patch up the plane and suspend it from my ceiling. Hopefully my next scale model will have more lift and less weight. This one flew well at a good speed...if only the motors gave more power to keep it up.

Attached is a pic of the plane just before flying and below is a short video of one of the flights.
