Way cool ! Too bad you didn’t have sidewinders. You had some good money shots. Lol

Looking for an inexpensive airplane fpv setup.

Default second test fly of the giant

here is the second test flight of the giant, a little more chaotic this time, I broke the screed drift and I put some scotch (I know I will not have but I did not want any repacking). In addition I have a lack of authority on the right wing or an engine that "pulls" more than the others on the left (I reversed the two engines outside last night, we'll see for the next flight)
now he has the national colors
following the next video

You're getting there and that was a much smoother landing.

Congratulations on your ambitious achievement Yves. You inspire inspire me to try building a large foam plane. How did you reinforce the wings so they do not fold in flight?
