Here's a video that my son took using my phone yesterday. Nothing special and of course the quality is only so so...

it doesnt really matter to me, 98% of the time the plane will be in a awkward position.

I just got started on it. I've got my motor mounted and that's about it. I can tell it's going to go pretty quickly once I spend some time on it. There's really not much to do other than gluing it together and mounting the electronics. Maybe tonight and tomorrow I'll have time to work on it,

Thank you for the info Bob

I still have some Techone Hobby planes left for sale if anyone is interested, they can find them on web or some on sale now in ebay.

Let me know how things go with it.

I stumbled upon your website just now Dave. Will you be adding the ability to take credit cards without Paypal?

I have Paypal, but they have a weird policy about your CC.

Will you be getting a Pulama in?

Possible implications of having a differential

It flies very well. Thanks for informing me about this plane.

Hi Takis,

I see that you took the trouble to eliminate the differential but I don't have a good understanding of how such a differential affects flying. I assume some trouble will appear when the plane rolls. I've made a short video clip about Piaget rolling with a big differential. Can we see problems caused by the differential?

Piaget Rolling

BTW, my Piaget weighs 280 sans batteries and uses:
- Dualsky XM2822 KV1450
- Himodel 12A ESC
- Electric Power 30C-60C 2S 450mAh
- 3 TowerPro 5g Servos
