I always thought they were supposed to be stationary but I did see it jump out and grab you.

I love the looks of Burky I. What controls are you using? Is it a DC head only or are you using rudder and elevator on the tail as well. It flies great if ya ask me. Would love to have a set of plans for that one. tom

Yep, just a little too big to fly indoors, I thought I was well clear of the wall as well Oh well...no harm done.

I did a have a few flights with it and it does fly well, feels light and is very manouverable with the stretched rudder. Looking forward too getting it out in the open air when the weather allows.
I think it is the perfect transition from the Fire Fly as all the lectrics/blades and head are the same.
A cheap way to experience a full bodied model even though it is pig ugly

Beauty (or ugliness) is in the eyes of the beholder......I like it!! But then I had a 1970 Subaru and liked it...

Hi Rich

Great fun the indoor events, I always stay warm!

When you say no harm done, did you check the wall for damage?
Need to get the paint brush out!

Great video well done.

Never thought to check Andy, I was too embarrassed!

Have now fitted the spats and took it out this afternoon for a few flights, missed the landing due to my batteries going flat in the camera.
