Well,this one went a whole lot better than the last build! I was wanting to install the Himax 2812-0850 in this plane,but it didn't have a long enough shaft to clear the cowling. So I put in the BP 8Y outrunner in. The AUW is 16 oz. ready to fly,so it should pull it around pretty much to scale flight. If the wind ever let's up,I'll see what she does! If it flys as good as it built,it should be a keeper! Ron

This plane is is now my favorite, defenetly a keeper! If you can, lose the landing gear and land in tall grass.

Isn't that kinda hard on the aileron servo? Ron

The tall grass-weeds-wildflowers I land on is about 2 ft. tall, the servo even took 2 landings on hard dirt (some times I overshoot).
The wing leading edges will take a beating. I put clear tape along all the edges, it helps a lot.

Where we get to fly the ground is pretty hard! The grass is cut to about 3/4 inch. Not very soft to land on,but it's level,and smooth! Ron

Sounds like the gear is a must for you.

Did you fly it yet?

Nope! The weather here is terrible! Wind and rain,about every day! I did try some ground handling with it in the street. It was kinda squirrely,so I bend the landing gear to where the main wheels look straight,but haven't had a chance to try it yet! Ron

once you get a feel for this plane you'll be surprised how mutch fun a 12 mph can be with it!

I've been flying mine most weekends since I got it in november.

I also live in Il, south surb. chicago.
