FT Spitfire/Warbird training.

Short FT Spitfire video. I get about 10 min. flight time on the battery. I was practicing flying/landing at the shop, which is not easy. Lots of stuff to hit. I flew about 6 min and then started to do a series of landings. Throw it up again and land. Repeat. This is one of the runs. Fun little bird.

New wing in the works. Slight modification from the last one. Fiber glassed and cut out for motor mount. Ready to paint and add insignia. Going with a WW2 German/Red Baron theme. Burgundy red on top and white on the bottom, black ailerons. Might do some yellow tape on the leading edge to help with orientation in flight.

New here so I thought I'd post something.
Here is wing that I made from foamboard. Inspired by JUDD-RC foamboard wing plans. With some trial and error I finally got one flying decent. Yellow one was ok but my flying skills were not. Ha!!
Running a graysons hobby V2 super sonic kit.
