Rob,

That was a beautiful landing!
And you're right, it always seems that when we have our camera's ready.... the landings are... well, a little less than what we had hoped for.

Nice flying!!
Even on a used battery, she flies very well and scale like.

Now I want one.... thanks a lot.

Verrry nice there Rob!

That would definitely qualify as a "greaser"

Done with refit, now it's back out to the sandbox for a few more days to play Army.....

Get to work AH-64's today and tonight for live-fire.........

Cheers all !

thank you gentlemen.
It really is much easier landing a trike than a tail-drager.

This model has so much going for it, plenty of weight for good penetration. Predictable performance and easy to control.
The stock ESC MUST be replaced before you fly though.
My model belonged to two people before it came to be mine.

A mate of my brothers' was moving it when he tripped, and landed on it at his home, completely crushing the foam fuselage. My brother ended up with the internal electronics.
Another friend of ours was flying the airframe on it's maiden. At the end of the flight, he was setting up for landing when people noticed that it was smoking. Not a good thing for electric foamies to be doing in flight.

pretty much wings level on final approach, the electronics were all fried and contact was lost. The model, however, auto-landed because it was already set up. Only damage was the gear. The burning speedy was quickly removed. The model was returned to the hobby shop in exchange for a new one.
My brother ended up with the airframe, and bought new undercarriage for it.
He fitted the electronics from the crushed model into the one which had the ESC fire. He used a 60A Turnigy Plush ESC.
He now had 2 FMS T28s (including the one his wife had bought for him for Christmas.)
I was the eventual beneficiary of these other folks misfortune.

I'm pronouncing my Blackburn Skua balsa scratchbuild "good"... 80 calendar days after build start.

That was fun. It was my first balsa build since my FF days... which ended in 1986... and my re-entry into the hobby about 20 months ago.

I always stand behind my plane when taking off. I would hate to be told to stand behind a fence like a child. But that's the nanny state of Australia for you I guess.
