I'll have some up but it will have to wait til I can carve out a little time in front of my PC, towards the end of the day. I am anxious to get it done and online but have work and all that stuff to do first.

shame you cancelled this looks like a very nice Jet. Im in Sydney as well bro. Im going to wait for it as much as i want one of the new nano racers that Kris just linked.

First Flights...new motor needed


I test flew mine this morning, unfortunately the motor burned out second flight, which was a bit of a relief as it was woefully underpowered (3s 2200 pack).

The good - Easy hand launch, flies straight and true,inverted only requires a little forward stick. Knife edge flight great, but does require aileron input due to roll coupling (I'll mix in aileron with rudder as with my habu). Easy to land.

The bad - slow and underpowered with an excessively noisy fan unit that lasted all of six minutes. Will barely make it over the top of a loop from level flight.

A very nicely thought out airframe (except flaking decals) let down in my example by a very poor power unit. First impression is it flies very similar to the habu (as you'd expect) but needs a better power plant.

Look forward to seeing what alternatives you come up with on this thread.
