Silly question (just curious since I'm too lazy to a actually do it). What do you use to tint the canopy and what glue do you use to put it back on with. Looks nice!

Looks GREAT !
I'd say it would be awful to have done all that and then not like flying it but that won't happen. It's hard not to like it. Enjoy it.

I just fogged it from a good distance with some Krylon black paint.
Masked off the yellow painted areas first and glued it back on with a thin film of the kit glue.

This was one of my favorites.
I created this from 2 Fliton "Jumping Jack" planes.
May she rest in pieces...

V nice! Was that you flying? At beginning sounded like someone else was flying it for first time. Also was that one flight? 7+mins or a compilation? Lastly, what happened to it? Looked like a real keeper!

I just retread the first frame re: pilot! I was thinking that that pilot knows what a pop top is! I was waiting for one, he did just about everything else.

SSheesh... I WISH that was me flying !
He was at the time a Futaba sponsored pilot.
That original video was over 8 minutes.
I planted her one afternoon when an elevator servo failed... gravity sucks.
A lot of my friends at that time believe that my design was copied and marketed by Fliton.
They shortly after came out with their "Rogue" biplane which was strangely similar....?

Try calibrating your throttle. Have the transmitter on and at full throttle. Connect your battery to your plane, and after a couple of beeps, lower the throttle to zero. You should get the regular startup tones after that, and your throttle will be calibrated.

Had similar issue on an other plane and it was due to not doing a throttle cali. As a matter of fact it was Dynam ESC.
