Thread OP

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


And the Youtube version... if i can get the darn thing to upload!!!

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.
