my B17 finally came in...

too windy to fly right now,

reinforced Landing gear (see pics) and did 20 or so ROG from my driveway into grass backyard, (no room to fly)

I just love the way it rises, just kinda lumbers into the air like the real thing.

EDIT; OCT 28/07 to add pics of conversion to 3 ch.

Ya, I know it looks a little rough... this was a "proof of concept" trial for me, if I could get it to fly well... Then I will mod the other one (still new in box), and hope my meager skills will make it look better too...
I had a hard time getting this to fly very well.
It would fly but was hard to control, not how I want my planes to fly...
crashed lots, hence the rough look...

Finally figured out to "twist" a little washout into the wing tips.
HUGE improvement, now very fun to fly, looks awesome in the air.

Is possible to fly in a "somewhat scale" manner and looks almost like the real thing!...Continue Reading

I just got this at TRU, I don't know if it is called the Single Wing but it flys incredible!!! just charged it up and had a incredibly long flight.... did not time it but wayyy longer than my Jet.

As you can see in the pic I did have to tape a dime to the nose, but I expected that after much flights w/ my AA Jet.

This one flys so well, on such low throttle, I think I may be able to get it to ROG w/ some (very) light weight landing gear

Edit; it's an AA Sport
