Miniflash #2 - Bee's can't stop me!!!


Here she is, #2. Less than a week into it and not much left to do except wait for my hacker to come back. I repaired the wing and recovered, everything else is from the new kit. I think I did a much better job covering, and the non-see through colors look much better to me... Can't wait to get it in the air!

Good job! I like the colors... it's a little different than most, which is nice.

Good luck w/ her.

Flew mine 6 times today. Really gave it heck and put it through it's paces... on the fith flight I had a scare. Right thumb slipped off the stick about 60 feet up or more... slid across the radio and nocked a trim slider. ACK! Slow snap rolls down to about 30 feet or so before I figured which control was off... (had massive up elevator in a neutral stick setting now) Barely got her down. Phew. Slightly rough landing on grass.. broke a strap on the motor mount... but had that fixed in about 10-15 minutes at the field. Lucky I was.

Very nice repairs. Looks as good as, or better than, new. LeRoy

Thanks... I used the same scheme but the opaque colors are deeper, much better contrast. I'd like to find some white star decals for the wings... maybe white stripes on one wing and stars on the other... something to break up the blue...

I found some white vinyl stars at the local Hobby People. They look pretty good, and they are in a wide variety of sizes. This is a Blitz 400 beta a while back...

Just got a call from Hacker Motors. The gearbox was toast, $43 for parts, labor, and shipping, very reasonable. It is on it's way back to me right now!!!!!! My Miniflash is ready, just need to toss the new motor mount together and round 2 will begin!

If you get a chance, you have to try the speedwing on this plane. It's great! Makes it a totally different plane for not a lot of $$
