Also will the eflite 60-120 electric retracts fit as I have exstras?
While I haven't started mine yet, I did check and found that I CAN squeeze the SkyLipo or Gens Ace 6S 5000mAh batteries there.

Thanks jcdfrd...is there anyone here that can do a Doppler speed reading on that video, assuming he stayed on the throttle long enough.
Thanks again

I tried to get doppler, the pilot is coming out of the throttle too soon.......looks to me like 100-110mph

also for doppler we need the ambient temp when you make the flight and then just have him make a straight and level pass down the runway 20' high or so, full throttle the whole pass. then it should be easy to get a good doppler reading.

He almost hit you on that first landing... Did give you some great shots, though... I don't know when I will ever get around to start building this one...

RugFlyer, can you find out what oleos he used? They look nice.

And that WAS a close call! LOL
And a very fast/hot landing too!
