I was out flying this week a bit, working on pirouetting. I managed to get some good work in, and a minor crash too!

This past weekend we had a great float fly at Comox Lake on Vancouver Island. Lots of fun - some things that shouldn't float did, some things that should have flown didn't, with splashes and crashes!

This is Frank's trusty Twin Otter that he built in 2004. The original was powered by two speed 600 motors with a 2.3:1 belt drive and an 8 cell NiMH battery pack - marginal by today's standard. After the brushless/lipo revolution, the model was fitted with two Nippy Black 1812-100s and a 3S 4100mAh battery pack turning 9X6 APC props. This gave the model much more power. Recently, Frank added the counter-rotating, three bladed Master Airscrew propellers which has increased performance yet again.

This model has also been fitted with floats, and is a great aerial video platform!
