Video Of World's Best A/P Plane - Nearly Hit Photographer (oops)


Here's another (low quality) video of the ultimate a/p ship. My SS is collecting dust since I began flying the BuzzDog. Today, I was using the "windy wing" (least undercamber - great wind penetration & glide) - the other wings are for heavy payloads, stunt flying and STOL applications.

I just can't get enough of this plane!!! Even in wind, it's phenomenal!!! I think I scared the photographer once - oops! The plane wasn't really as close to the camera as it seemed in the video - the zoom was on & blah, blah, blah.

Happy flyin',

Haha,

Thats awesome. It looks like a VTOL when landing!!

Oh man that thing must be fun. Im curious how much weight those things can carry. You tried anything yet?

Awesome bird.

How much weight? I'm not really sure, but with the camera attached, the performance seems "normal" - perhaps a very slight degredation in glide performance - certainly not much. With 660 (actual) square inches of slightly undercambered wing, this thing will lift like . . . um . . . a normal sized anvil, I guess.

Happy flyin,
