Hi Crispy and Welcome to Wattflyers, Nice plane and flight just wondering if the edf intake on the bottom causes rocks and debris to get into the fan and motor causing problems during landings take care, Chellie

Hey there Crispy
Nice flight and landing in the snow.
You must have good reflexes and depth perception to fly that thing.
I have to have slow flyers myself.
I have built a couple of fast planes but my area is too small for them.
Have a good day.
Crash

Very cool vid . I have a spare generic 64mm and a 66mm edf from an eflight airliner laying around. Wonder if either of those would suffice. Plenty of 4S lipos

Welcome to WF !

I will be getting some plans from you! Have a Eflite MIG 15 to be cannibalized for a micro build. You should sell a "full set version" for all plans at a discount -- I would be "in" for that.

Too many hobbies, and not enough time!

We have a club mate with a CNC. Precision cutting is always nice. Any way to get a .dxf or can the vectors be gleaned off a .PDF like they can with Corelworks ?
