I've always wanted one of these


Picked this up from Bob at Visalia last weekend. Ever since I saw the finger hole I've wanted one. The raw airframe weighed in at 10.5 oz. I'm thinking I want to try the new HS 45 HB servo's for the ailerons and a HS 65 HB in the fuse for elevator. I'm really looking forward to building the V-Tail links and rods NOT

Nice Bat.

I'm really excited to find out how well I can throw this ship. I was a pitcher in High School and I can still huck things. I had a Mini Speed wing w/o motor and set up as a sloper. Flew great. I added a wood crutch underneath so I could grab it with my ring finger and thumb. My index and middle finger were on a reinforced section of the trailing edge between the elevons. I could huck this wing. I could easlily let it go 300+ feet out and turn it around and get a hand catch on the way back. I just love hucking ships! Last weekend I watched JW walk out onto the grass at the Visalia field and really (no kidding) I mean really huck his Supra. It was spec'ed out in less than 5 min. He used a javilan throw technique modified to the weight and wing of the supra. Looked very effective.

Well I got the first flights in on the BAT. The decalage or incident is way off. I need to shim the v-tail qute a bit. I just wonder if I'm going to be able to unglue the v-tail from the boom. I used goop so I may be able to, I just hope I don't break the weak boom in doing so. I also found out that 25 mph winds are TOO MUCH for the bat.
