Summer of Space - Enterprise D Maiden!


So the Summer of Space has taken a very nice turn to success!

I finally got the Enterprise D all built, tested and flying! Only took 2 tries to make it fly =)

I had a bit of trouble with my control throws on the first flight. I had Dual rates off and i NEEDED it!

After a few days in Space Dock it was ready to fly again and it was great!

This thing is a total floater! WAAAAAAYYYY better than the Reliant (my previous best floater)

Anyhow I revised the design a bit to add a bunch of reinforcement to the main fuse. You can see in the video that it is a bit wobbly but man does it fly nice!

It floats so well that i don't doubt that in a slight wind it will look like it is hovering. Excellent landings are easy with this thing! Heck i don't even need my hay field... good thing too. The farmer cut it all down!

Anyhow here is the thread for the Enterprise

the video thing didnt work. Nice to hear you got it up and flying. Sounds like a great flyer, we all will have to wait till the video is up to judge that ourselves though i am sure it will not dissapoint.
