Why my plane flies better than yours...

Okay, here is why my TLAR flies much better than yours!
Notice on left wing the e-zone sticker. Yep, the sticker does all the work!!! This M-100 powered slow flyer flies great on qualcomms. Quickest build I've ever done. Wings took 10 minutes. Fuse 5 minutes. Spent more time putting on linkages etc. And she flies great to boot!!! Really starting to like these slower models.

Flies nice and slow. Slow enough to enjoy in your back or side yard or out in your street. No plans. I just got meat trays and cut them. Then held them over a kerosene heater to bend the airfoil. Glued and taped for the sorta polyhedral. For fuse, hand drew a shape and cut it with a hand held foam cutter. Glued a stick in front and mounted the motor to stick. For the servos, they are held in just by double stick foam tape.

After spending a month of evenings carefully assembling a stick model out of 1/16" stick, there is nothing like a hack and slash foamie to shake off the migraine! Ain't KISS fun?

That is **** ugly!! MAke it bigger, and put a camera or a bomb drop on it. Then it wouldn't be as ugly. Hello, successor to the SR-71 spyplane...

That looks like something I would build, but, I might not admit it.

Sorry...... I'm just envious

The prop had been glued back together about 50 times, so the sligtest bump broke it, so just catch the plane!

Ah. Beautiful!

Where's the landing gear and how does she loop?
