24" span. Running a Park 250, E-Flite 10A ESC, PQ 2S 400s and 800s, Berg 4ch rx, S-60 for ailerons, Blue Arrow Micros for R and E. Came in at 120 grams without the battery. Not bad for FFF I think.

The club I am in has a nice agreement with the Navy to fly at one of their NOLFs or Navy Off-Site Landing Fields on weekends or Federal Holidays.

Not much in the way of facilities but we darn sure don't do too many cross wind landings! (Unless we want to of course!)

It is unmanned usually but they bring out instructors, ATC and fire types when they are doing ops there. Pretty neat setup. LOT of T-34Cs and Texan IIs buzzing about when active.

Nice cut grassy areas for the foamies and biiiig paved runways for the nitros, big gassers and turbines!

I was really surprised that the Navy allows it in today's liability fear fueled world. They are VERY accommodating!

It IS awesome though and I feel like I am getting a little return on my tax dollars when I fly there!

They charge us $200 a year!

Sometimes we get little surprises like this!

Fokker Eindecker built for slow flying or indoor flying.

The fuse is FFF, the wings and tail assy are 3mm Depron, Alum tubing and CF rods for the wing struts and spars.

Running an E-Flite Park 250 with a 7x4 APC on a 2s 400mAh PQ li-po, E-Flite 10A ESC, Blue Bird sub-micro servos an a Berg micro stamp Rx. 4oz AUW minus batt! My lightest build by far.

Maidened ROG at the house and with just a few clicks was floating around great! The 250 was perfect but I never went above about 50% t. Cruising at around 25% t. Power to spare to put it mildly, too much for this model really.

The gym flying was next and went great as well but a single court gym gets small quickly!

Very light and floaty.
