Aresti 40 ARF Flight Report

I took my new Aresti 40 up for the first time this weekend. First the specs:
Hanger 9 Aresti 40 ARF
565 sq. in. wing
98oz AUW
25oz wing loading
Hacker B50 13S Geared 5.2-1
Jeti Master 40 ESC
14 2400 Cells
14x10 APC-E Prop
100 watts per pound
This plane is very responsive and felt “squirrelly” when I first took off, but after a couple of laps and a few clicks of trim the plane felt better. This plane has a clean airfoil and is quite fast witch allows me to trade airspeed for vertical maneuvers. I am getting 5-minute flights with very solid pattern aerobatics. I hope to get some videos this weekend and will post them for the list. Full specs and pictures are on my web site at:

The plane is called the Aresti. You have way too many hacker motors, I think you need to send me one or 2

Can't wait to see your videos. The others I've seen from your site are always high quality. I'm looking forward to it.
