Hi Ken
There is some video......
I just need to upload it.

Not to bad for the maiden flight. You have to get used to the flying characteristics as she gets away from you quickly if you don't watch out!

The prototype's colour did not help either as the raw colour was the same top and bottom in dark cloudy conditions..
(Being kind to Sean, as he dumped it in the bush!)
That's also the reason for all the strapping tape!

She's no vtpr model, but she has potential.....

Try a fishing rod to cast it down J!!!

U need ABS system to slow it down for what I could see on the pics!

Another one that survived Mayhem Day...
U are developing some very accurate building skills J... it shows on first flight success curve!

Whats next?
Siblings..?

Congrats on the successful maiden! Woo hoo!


If one were to put a little longer wings on that, would it make a nice TD plane?

Johann, that is soooooo cool! With that wing she looks like a go to ship for the Slipper. Maybe consider a deployable drogue chute for the landings, eh? Thanks for sharing the build with all of us.

If I was to do 10% of the aerobatics on this short footage, U would be the number one DIY glider builder in the world!

I must get a decent FS on my Imac...

What is that little spec on the left upper corner at min. 2.49?
Something about that shape looks familiar...

Keep the energy flow J, we are getting used to have something going on!!!
Addiction level breached.
Great build, great first flight, great plane...
Whats missing???

Wow Johann, what a beautiful sloper you have there! Talk about a slippery looking aircraft, the cross section of it is so small that it almost disappeared in that head on view. She sure looks like a winner, and I'm certain that you are going to have great fun wringing it out. Please keep us posted on how you proceed?

Cheers, and well done!

Rob
... and that shot captioned "Nice!", well, I had to just look at that for a few minutes before moving on - beautiful!
