Cool
The Smoothie Flys!

So, good old CW2 Dennis Eelkema finished building his Mountain Models Smoothie that Shovelheadfreak sent over to us. Sorry, no build pictures, as he was in such a hurry to finish it he didnt take any.

However, here are some pics of "maiden flight day" on, as Dennis calls it his "ninja plane". Yeah, he's a bit different, but he keeps us laughing.

I did the maiden for him just to get it all set up and trimmed. We are flying it on an AXI 2208/34, 9x4.7 prop and two 3S 1320 lipos. Plenty of power and just heavy enough to handle the mild winds today. All in all, great flying little plane!

I didnt have my buddy box available today, so I took it up about 150 feet and handed him the TX. He flew about 3 nice patterns before getting a bit disoriented. I took the TX and landed it without incident though. All in all, not bad at all for a firts time builder/flyer!

Laine.
