RC Powered Paraglider...

Here are a couple videos of my latest creation... I am currently in the process of building a MUCH better version with an OS Max .46AX as the powerplant (the black one in the pictures)...

What did it sound like then???

It's got an AXI 2812-14 with a APC10x7 prop running on 8-Nimh sub-C cells. I have a feeling that it sounds a little funny b/c that video was taken on a small digital camera. I was more concerned with the pictures and the video was an after thought. When I get the new one up and flying, i'll for sure get my video camera out and get some good videos.

Here is the like to the discussion about the electric and more over the new and improved nitro version...


Any comments are welcome... as long as they have to do with how sweet this thing is going to be once it's fninished!!!
