Here's the picts...and a vid, on the table.

I used the Plantraco Micro Racer gear, including motor!

I dremmeled out alot of the extra foam weight, and i'll weight it soon.

Butters and I will film a vid tomorrow while flying, ....today, it landed and the motor came loose...I forgot to glue the motor in, I just tac glued it in, while building it.... , and it still flew awesome!...guys this really flys, one of the only, conversions that I have done sucessfully!...

Thanks Butters, and I think Termite, for selling me this plane to try this out!

Here it is on the bench.

Richthofen the German Ace. Would have been proud!

It flew straight.....but when I took a turn it dived down and I broke loose a carbon rod, and that was it! I think I layed on the stick too long...But it's all glued-up for Monday, To windy today.

Thanks Led Zepplin For the Plans.... https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=842589

I'm still trying out one other prop... while I "try to make a Soda-Pop-Prop!"

The Turbo prop is light but I think it needs a lighter prop... so I can reduse my speed to scale....and keep the nose lightly lifted, but it's running from what I saw late last night ...pretty good!

It has plenty of power!... I was at 1/4-1/2 throttle max, for about 30 feet then I turned back thats when I had the accident. The landing gear I think is a must, to keep the plane from wing-tipping while turning. All it needs is some care and a hot-humid still day!...

It was challenging to say the least!..

PLANTRACO: Butterfly 2 channel Rx & Turbo Prop.

Other: GB05 Gear, 20-30 mah lipo

Micro Flier's NanoACT From BSD.. I think these!.. are the best.

Here's Plantraco's Henry Mignet HM-8 "Avionnette"

Old time flyers, thats what I like! Remindes me of the Red Barron.

The Avionnette has an adjustable rear elev, that I forgot about when the vid was shot. Sinse then, I have lowered it, reducing the porpusing.
If you are flying it outside it has awesome control even in light wind. It's a slow fun flyer.
I'm thinking of making it a 3ch using a 3ch butterfly rec, and a MicroFlier NanoACT from BSD....

I decited to put this one in a case..It deserves a case..... "Platt #507" Now it's safe for travel.

It was windy that day, but this thing cut right through the wind.

I normally fly higher but I wanted to keep it in the treeline...
