Great Planes Viper 500 Innaugural Flight

I first-flighted my Great Planes Viper 500 in early morning fog at NVRC in Arcola, Va., today. Pics are at this gallery link Viper Pics

My Viper (the white one) is running a Thunder Tiger Pro .40BB engine with a 9x6 APC prop, per AMA 424 rules. My buddy's plane (the red one) is also set up for 424, running a SuperTigre .40 engine and APC 9x6 prop.

These planes are fast and smooth (with the correct control surface movements). Mine was clocked at 103 and 100 with a radar gun (on the model's third flight and the fourth time the engine had been run). Lots of fun.
