you need to put some color on that thing next time you fly and vid. Took me forever to find the white plane against the white clouds and white snow and chest mounted camera

looks good though

I kind of got the bend out the board today so I'm going to make a new motor mount and hopefully give it a flight tomorow.

Hey guys I fixed up my zephyr and gave it another try again and I wrecked it. I had to much up trim in it and it just did a back plop and crashed. I scrapped it bc it was to much of a pain to try to get flying, and I have a real zephyr on its way to me so I don't need a scratch built one. It was cool when it flew but after that landing in the snow it was a gonner. If you guys still want the specs let me know and I'll post them. But honestly I wouldn't build it bc it only flew ok.
