failure....fine flying plane, set up properly, bad piloting led to another hole in the ground....

Here's proof.

It doesn't look that bad, but a 4y/o and a 1y/o prevent detailed repairs
Whattaya think Tony?

Im getting closer and closer each build....

My 4th one....this one has 3/4 oz glass on the belly pan, held in place by Polycrylic then 30 min expoxy lovingly painted on the first 3/4.

I think the biggest improvement on this build this is the introduction of white gorilla glue to attach the inlet lip and glue in flat CF taileron supports.

Red plastic paint on the bottom of the wings and polycrylic on the vert stab to stiffen it up a bit.

HET 6904 on Turnigy 3200kv edf outrunner. Mystery 80amp esc, Neuenergy 4s 1800 30c. AUW is 26 oz

Just did some speed passes and I'm officially in the 100mph club...!

Flying on the cheap on this one, but just bought an Arc 28-47-1...any advice for that one?

Well I've finished the 3rd...this time I used a fine micro-weave/silk/fiberglass stuff on the vertical stab with Polycrylic Cleargloss WBPU. Painted the stab with red plastic paint, painted wing bottoms with neon orange sign paint. I think the coolest part is that I used 5 min epoxy on the bellypan making it pretty rigid.

UPDATE: This one is dead...had a rigged up fan that had a loose screw holding the motor to the housing...2 crashes, 2 repairs...#3 KTFO.

So number 2 Edge 540T um I mean was flying again. I soon discovered that the landing gear should be facing in the correct direction or they break quite easily.

Thanks to Draknkep and Great Planes I now have 2 sets in the mail. The folks in this hobby amaze me!!!
