Marchetti SF-260

This is my Marchetti SF-260, It has a box type fuselage & NACA0013 wing, its based on drawings found at Mostly made from 3mm depron & powered by another rewound blue wonder, something like 2000kv pulling 18-19a from a 1000mah lipo on a not very well balanced 7x5 prop, 360g AUW.

It doesnt look it in the video but its actually a tiny bit quicker than our other higher kv park flier sized pusher jets & consistently edges away from them. Its not really my type of thing but thought I would have a go at a semi scale warbird type thing.
At times it feels like a baby to fly but has retained some characteristics I have read about regarding the full scale aircraft. In a stall it is not very well behaved, there is plenty of warning but it really needs the motor spinning to keep it in the air & only comfortably cruises at a relatively high throttle setting even though I went for a low-ish wing loading, someone else noted its either flying or falling & this model is pretty much the same.

Hi im kiet, i will only share an event when i saw an sf260fh retracted its gears automatically, no one touch the lever of the gears since the pilot is only about to start their flight, i will only ask anyone from this group if they haven seen or experience the same event. Thank you guys
