Shock-Flyer Flight


I built my Shock-Flyer Extrema on Christmas Eve and took it with me from Fort Worth, Texas to Little Rock, Arkansas on Christmas Day with Tom Blakeney on our way to the Springfield, Missouri indoor fly in. Friday in North Little Rock was cool but sunny and calm. Our friend there, Paul Willenborg, introduced us to the Sod Farm and that was where my Extrema got it's maiden flight.

I left the test flight chores to Tom so I could take pictures and since he would be much less likely to ding the new plane than I. It was a great day to fly and get some good shots. Hope you like the pictures.

Don,

The battery in it is a 3 cell Etec 700 LiPo that weighs 49g/1.7oz. It is necessary to use 3 cells because of the motor the stock Ikarus drive uses. I am going to try some of the other drive combinations I have that use 2 cell LiPos since I already have a bunch of them.

William A,

I phone ordered this one from Ikarus-USA in Florida on December 10th and got it on the 19th. With their ads hitting all of the magazines now there are a lot of people chasing them.
