Alfa A4

The GWS kit is really nice, and I love how the A4 looks, but it leaves a little to be desired performance wise. So I decided this one would get the 5 blade rotor in the stock alfa fan w/ a little screamer motor.

I took some creative liberty with the decals (ala marines and navy stickers), otherwise its jst like everyother a4 Ive seen

Maiden report soon.

Light winds (steady at 5kts)
Clear Skies (65F)

Checked throws and balance, then comitted to flying it.

Full throttle takeoff was in about 75ft. Plane is very twitchy with 55% expo. Recommended throws are good, rolls are very axial loops well. Id say 60 - 65mph in a shallow dive.

1350 pack balanced better than the 1000 and I got about 4:30 mins flight out of the 1000 pack.
