Kosh,
What a great flight!!!! All I can say is Wow. Right now I'm just hoping that mine will fly. To control a plane like that and not be a nervous wreck.:eek: My hat is off to all you pilots....:)

Thanks guys, To tell you the truth I wasn't thinking about what I was really doing other than trying to keep it close to the non zooming camera. Keeping it close limited what I could do and I was more worried about smacking my camera man up side his head than anything else. He's a little more skidish after 1 of my RC trucks caught him in the chest while filming. :o

Is the 15.5 the overall length or the wing sweep ?
I just picked up a little 25gram 2500kv that swings a 5x3 like a mad hornet and that looks like a good home for it

15.5" is the overall length of the wing sweep not counting control surfaces. Your motor sounds like it would work fine.


And how did you do the graphics that looks nice

The graphics is really a very fine cloth that I glued on top with some spray adhesive.

Heres a closeup of the covering. You can see how lite this is on a small plane. Susan found this at a fabric store and it looked like a simple way to give it some color.

That plane looks great and flies well so very good job. I always look forward to seeing what Susan brings back each week from your field now. Glad you liked the video and I will do some more when the right footage shows up.
