Glen F. for shooting the video used for this web page.


Details about the plane:

The airplane is painted so there is no covering to peel. Wingspan 56" Weight 7.2lbs ( with 20 oz. of fuel onboard ) Using 4 channel PCM radio with 4 servos. Power is from 2 OS .40 FX (The pictures show the OS fp .35 engines) turning 10x6 Master airscrew props.The Plane flew so well I decided to spend the money for the FX engines.

OK Lets see it FLY!

The plane flys GREAT. I start the engines and set them on the rich side.(new engines should always be run just a little rich)

Take Off:

The power was added and as the plane rolled down the runway the nose came up and it was an Awesome feeling.

First flight:

The plane flew like it was on rails! The plane flew without any trim changes. I must say there is no other feeling like it when your design takes to the air. It is a rush that no drug could ever give you!

Inverted:

Well... most planes will never be flown upside down but it is ok to do it with a model. This one flys very well inverted. Notice the bottom of the wing is white and you can also see the wheels are sticking up.

Landing:

After about 15 mins of flying it is time to bring it in and the landings are smooth and nose high. This really is a nice flying airplane. This project took about 65 hrs to build. But another airplane like this could be built in about 35 hrs. the second one always builds in about 1/2 the time of the first one.
