No worries, and no apology needed. Was just curious if you were asking about something else.

Time to burn up some wind yo!

She has flown successfully, great characteristics, flaps slow it down to land and aid well with the roll rate, they go the same way to speed it up not very windy, but flying well for the amount of wind, no waterfalls as yet but hopefully the wind picks up! Camber works well, a little lead was added to the tail, but still needs more (needs some elevator inverted still) Shane is very happy!

Well done Shane and the lads. Outstanding effort.

Thoroughly deserves an outstanding result.

I think Brisbane has to be the most fertile new design and construction centre on the planet right now...its it the air? Is it the Pies?

Whatever it is, I want some!

Cheers,

James.

Congrats ...


Shane, congrats on the successful maiden. Mat and I are spewing cause we hummed and harred about heading up to the Knob today, but decided the wind was too light and went had a fly at Woody Point instead. Oh well, I suppose we'll get to see history being made some other time!!! Catch you again soon, Steve
