No.. itīs not me

Here is my brand new ASSASSIN!!! As it is a radical wing, I need a spare, once I missed one, not so much time ago, donīt know if you all remember

A good thing is that I changed my radio - I sold my Spektrum (arghhhh!) and bought a Hitec Aurora 9 (much much better), I donīt think Iīll have more often troubles like I did in the past(lost of signal and control).

For me is it so good to build, and each model I make, I can improve my skills and let the model better and better

Hope you like my new Assassin!

Got to do the maiden flight today. Not the best conditions though, very windy and it was blowing 16 MPH and gusting to well over 20. We have a storm front coming in and it is going to be bad flying weather until who know's when.

I took three trys to get her up, no big deal. First try was not enough reflex and throttle, the second was also low throttle and a poor throw. The third was the charm I made one circuit around the park, did a very brief full throttle and glided her in. Wanted more but in those conditions I couldn't even get a feel of what triming it needed. Really looks like this is going to be a blast to fly once the weather settles down a bit. The winglets seemed to hold her track well in the wind and I hope to get to try a VTO next time.
Here is the video
