This is my Little Stick masquerading as a Moraine-Saulnier down at the park.
There are some build pics in an earlier blog here:

Ripping around the park with my V-Diamond. Hopped it up a little from the recommended set up with a Multiplex Permax BL-480/4D, Hyperion 2100mah 20/30C battery, Hyperion 50amp ESC and 6 x 5.5 prop. Havenít had a radar gun on it yet, but the same set up on my Stryker takes it to 130 kmph. Flew it for awhile with landing gear then took it off saving 2 oz and some drag. Installed a hand hold/landing skid which works well.
Thread and review links are in an earlier blog entry here:

EDIT 03/09: Vid is here:

Some fun down at the park with my scratch built delta ridge soaring glider converted to electric. I did it up in French livery as it had a sort of Miragish look about it. It is powered with a geared Astron motor, 2500mah 20/30C Hyperion battery and 50 amp Hyperion ESC and still flys well as a ridge soarer.
