I kind of like the part with the plane on the ground. Nice. And a very nice plane. Really love the music. Fits the plane to a T.

Thanks Joe. I wanted to start off with the film in an aged black and white, and then fade to colour, but that's a bit beyond me right now!

Excellent video! How did you find the flying characteristics of the C-III? I built the prototype 38" version; had a devil of a time taxiing with that small vert stab...

Hi Robert. I find she handles really well on the ground. A touch of power and the tail comes right around. If she's a little sluggish, a bit of down elevator lightens the tail and then she turns easily again.

The vertical stab and rudder area is a bit small for the size of airplane, and I notice that on take off I need to get on the right rudder early. I don't need a lot of rudder, I just need to make sure it's applied almost immediately. No real problems though, it's all part of flying the airplane. Other than that, she handles great in the air. I am thrilled by how well she flies!
