Default Mini Tumbleweed

I did a search and found a press release:

http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7988

I also found a few mentions but nothing about anyone actually owning or flying one.

Long story short, I picked one up from a local seller. I thought it was interesting because they were made right here in Lakeland, FL. It's NIB and looks to be very well made........and the price was right

Two things that make me want to get creative......

First, it has wire push/pull control rods with bent end connections. I want to replace them with single direction CF with nylon "clevii"

Second, it has flaps I never flew a 3D plane that had or needed flaps. My thought is to just make the ailerons larger and eliminate them. Then again, for doing slow passes they might be fun.

Has anyone flown one?? Seen one?? Any information greatly appreciated!!
