Not Lady Ga Ga....LOL

....it's Pink Floyd musiic in the opening scenes and still shots, as well as the closeing shots and credits. No music during the flight.
apparently any music that's copywrited (even if I paid for it) can't be used in certain countries on You tube. (it plays fine for me)

Youtube will exchange the music for something from thier collection but It will play at full volume through out the entire video.
I'll make a new video.

Until then, this is the same jet (with out the pilot, Ali saying it's faster than the P-20 powered Habu's he's had, or any Habu 32 he's flown. )

Hmmmm....That's wierd?

I figured I'd just use one of Youtube's stock music files for now. (since there's no option for "No music"). I picked a "classical" tune, seeing that I had the option to simply turn down, or mute the audio later.
When they were done editing it. I played it, only to find my music still there and the county restriction had been removed.
There's an AD that plays at the bottom, but you can turn it off.

Jayb!rdz,

Can you view it down under now?

It's just been sitting idle. The one in the latest video (with the mach fan) is 10mph faster than my E-Flight fan based habus.
That would be a good airframe make a fast one, but no time to get it done before the next event. We'll get it flown again, as it is at The Big Jolt.

I gotta repair the wind/hail damage from Vegas on my EZ up.
Viperjet @ Best in the West video coming next.

Had to abort this take-off, started wearing. Bent one of struts back and was able to go for another flight.

I would say 8lbs is tops and still have a great flying model, we have flown many with 12s and they come in at 8lbs and a couple oz's the lightest 12s we put together was 7.9lbs so it can be done

The center of the factory recommended position works fine for the 5 Habus i've built.

107mm at the wing joint from the leading edge, Aft.
The factory range is 100-115mm.
