Rc Bird

Hi everybody, I designed and built a swift rc airplane. It has a wingspan of 68cm, weighs 210g and is powered by a Turnigy 2211/2300, 3s 800mah lipo and 5x5 prop.
Made from Depron, Kfm 2 airfoil.
It flies extremely well, even in bad weather conditions. It is now online as a free download plan in the german Modell Aviator magazine:

If you open in Chrome, it will ask you if you want to to translate for you. Mine will auto-detect source|destination language. Not 100% accurate grammatically, but darned close enough to be usable.

Nice plane/Bird... Not sure when I will get around to building one, but it sure looks like a winner.
