And when nobody is ready for it, you can dive down for a low level, power off pass. This thing makes a very eerie whistling sound as it goes by. A few guys always comments on how much the V70 sounds like a turbine when powered up.
Of all my planes, this one flies the best when there's some wind. It can hold altitude much better and due to it's sleek shape, wind buffeting isn't quite so much a problem.

Saw very good example of the Zephyrs "wing flutter" yesterday. Friend pulled out hard from a full powered dive. WOW! Makes a hell of a noise! The vibration is very apparent. Must be significant forces in play to make such a rigid surface literally buzz with vibration? Does the flight charachteristics no favours.

Anyway said friend (Delwyn) and I flight footage:

Hey Mick
footage shot with one of these:
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s..._5MP_CMOS.html

My brother also uses this but I dont think his results are as good?? Maybe lens quality and subsequent results varies with batch?
Also suggest using good quality, name brand micro SD card. I'm using 8GB, class4, Toshiba for mine.
edit was done using "Windows Live Movie Maker".

Ok, I hope I don't get nailed to much for this question, but here goes, and please remember, 25 years with gas engines, hardly any with electrics. I received mine today and i'm wanting to hook up the speed controller to the motor but 3 black wires from esc, and 3 black wires from motor. which one goes where?

Hook em up. If the motor spins in reverse, swap two with each other. It should spin the other way. :-)

Now remember, Steve. Keep your hands away from the fan until you are completely over being dizzy from running in circles when you saw the package!

Its been discussed here a bit. We have had several failures with epoxy coming appart. My tail is still held in ok with it, but the wing mount fell out. Many recommend "medium CA" and prep your surfaces with sand paper.
