The Smoothie Flys!

So, good old CW2 Dennis Eelkema finished building his Mountain Models Smoothie that Shovelheadfreak sent over to us. Sorry, no build pictures, as he was in such a hurry to finish it he didnt take any.

However, here are some pics of "maiden flight day" on, as Dennis calls it his "ninja plane". Yeah, he's a bit different, but he keeps us laughing.

I did the maiden for him just to get it all set up and trimmed. We are flying it on an AXI 2208/34, 9x4.7 prop and two 3S 1320 lipos. Plenty of power and just heavy enough to handle the mild winds today. All in all, great flying little plane!

I didnt have my buddy box available today, so I took it up about 150 feet and handed him the TX. He flew about 3 nice patterns before getting a bit disoriented. I took the TX and landed it without incident though. All in all, not bad at all for a firts time builder/flyer!
