Mountain Models newest plane


It hasn't been flown yet, it really belongs over in sport, it doesn't have a name yet, but I thought I'd show you my first prototype. owered by a geared 480 Race, it will pull straight up out of my hand. It will be considerably easier to build than a Switchback and has a steerable tailwheel. This one still needs a cowl.

I need a name for it. If you think of a name and I use it, I'll give you one.

I get to be the first one to say it...

Oops, you did it again!

I like it! Cant wait to hear the flight reports.

I think with a cowling, it is going to look AWESOME!

What kind of batteries are you planning?

Kirby, Static, the 480 is pulling 14 amps so the smallest pack it will take is a 600AE. The battery compartment is huge so a bunch of battery types will fit.

well at the first look it looked like an ultra sport (the purple one). since mini sport is already used, how about the ultra mini micro sport. lol how many chances we get?

Looks like a SMOOTHIE to me! With a nice cowl it will really be a charmer. With nice lines and balance it should really fly nice. Will follow this thread to find out when they become available. Gud Flying.....Dick
