Alfa A4

The GWS kit is really nice, and I love how the A4 looks, but it leaves a little to be desired performance wise. So I decided this one would get the 5 blade rotor in the stock alfa fan w/ a little screamer motor.

I took some creative liberty with the decals (ala marines and navy stickers), otherwise its jst like everyother a4 Ive seen

Maiden report soon.

MAIDEN REPORT
-------------------

Light winds (steady at 5kts)
Clear Skies (65F)

Checked throws and balance, then comitted to flying it.

Full throttle takeoff was in about 75ft. Plane is very twitchy with 55% expo. Recommended throws are good, rolls are very axial loops well. Id say 60 - 65mph in a shallow dive.

1350 pack balanced better than the 1000 and I got about 4:30 mins flight out of the 1000 pack.
