Here it is! Done and flown!
I didnt edit the video, take off is at 1:05. Camera sucks too. But, it is what it is.

I have been keeping this one under wraps. This is all you get to see of my new plane until Tuesday or Wednesday when I will post the pics and video of the maiden flight.

Maiden flight info is:

2370 watts and 53 amps from a Castle Ice HV 80, AXI 5345/14, 12S 5000 lipos.

Well fellas, how does 26.5lbs of thrust and 127 mph grab ya? Calculated numbers anyway. They are usually pretty close.

Im just about done with my latest creation. I could test fly it tomorrow (Easter) but, chances are, I'll spend the day with the family doin fun stuff.

Since I dont have a proper scale, I estimate it at about 15lbs AUW. After tonight, the only thing left is covering. I'll probably do the maiden naked. (the plane, not me) (ok, maybe both of us).

Dont even ask for details or pictures, cuz ya aint gettin em! This one is top secret! I MIGHT post pictures of it the day I leave for SEFF. I will probably wait until the first day of SEFF though.

Thats all the info ya get for now! I will let you know how the maiden flight goes once I do it.
