that was a great landing, considering the wheel came off on takeoff. awesome recovery, considering that the missing wheel must have been playing on your mind the whole flight.

2x70mm EDF from HK with 2 45amps ESCs, turnigy regulator, 5x 3kg servos, 1x1,6kgs servo for bomb bay...1 4S LIPO 4500mah.

some preliminaries...

the second flight...with 300grs in the nose!...i must move everything forward!

Thanks Terry Mitchel for inspired me with his great skills with depron and his Canberra too.
Thanks Tito Johnston, a great person! a great designer...
A lot of people help me to carry on this project. Thanks everyone!

Honestly, that looks pretty good!

Buildings what I enjoy.
Always have loved the canberra. I wrote a few years back about mine never being maidened but as of a few weeks ago she also flew. happy with her so far just still adjusting the COG and elevator as thats still very touchy.

Great plane and happy to see so many flights from her already.

Really a great model!
we did 45 misions
also we did the "Flying Tribute" , a flying with real noises (from real canberras), and real pilots, navigators, radar,controltower...and we recreate a real mision of this plane...

One picture, is from day that we flew over the real MK62 gate guardian in Parana city, where canberras had base, during the monument inauguration...a great honor
