Both videos are of same flight, the first flight of Yuri's new Virage, one on Samsung Galaxy 6s and the other ehelibuf s digital camera. I recieved the prototype 3 weeks ago and started building........
Yuri has done it again, this airframe is something else.....22.2 oz. When I got it, 2035 2100kv jeti-phasor
160hv castle
1-94802 airtronics in tail
2x5s 1800 thunder power (old packs)
GM 17.5x17.5
AUW 68.6 oz..."cool 69"
Still pulled 5000 watts
Most of you know I'm not a traditional f5b pilot, so I can't comment on its competition course qualities, and only after one flight with the sun practically in my face it is a real performer, Wednesday I will fly it again,with hopes of new packs and the 18x23 which should bump the watts up to way over 6,000....😨😨😨😨
Thank you Yuri once again for having faith in my flying skills as to test another one of your airframes!!!!!!!

Test plane photos, I documented my build but really it's no different than his other models, once again Pete's mounts were up to the task, can't say enough about the simplicity of his mounts.......Happy Valentine's day, Yuri puts tons of LOVE into each airframe.......this was my Valentine

Looks like a million $ Yuri!
