Sapac Eurofighter Typhoon

Here is some video of one of the flights on the new Eurofighter. I didn't have a lot of time to edit tonight but this still really shows how awesome the plane is! In the vid you will see fast forward flight upright and inverted, knife edge(yes knife edge!), fast rolls, slow roll, and high alfa.

This is on a 4 cell 2250 Longmax and 40 amp controller. Everything else is stock!

When I get a chance I'll edit the rest of the video and add some music!

Now that was pretty awesome! I really liked the harriers and it looks like it has plenty of thrust. I need to look at this jet.

Thanks

excellent vid. i tried to maiden mine today, it's stock pnp 250 watts and has the undercarriage on, but it wouldn't take off on damp grass. you seem so confident hand launching yours, perhaps i should try that, but i'd prefer bungee launching i think

Mine has 4 cells and 560 watts so its easy to hand launch. I flew it on 3 cells though and was very easy to launch as well because of the light wing loading. You will be fine because its a delta and they don;t really stall ..just keep her level.

Outstanding!

Love that hollow sound similar to the funjet as its passing by.

That long series of rolls looked arrow straight. You must have your CG spot on.

Very nice. Looks like its very stable and hand launches are a piece of cake.

Yeah the sound is wicked! On the rolls believe it or not I was inputting rudder, elevator, rudder, elevator, rudder, elevator, etc. I do a lot of harrier rolls with 3d planes and the inputs are identical and somehow my brain can keep up with the things it rolls.
