Thanks guys. I am very happy with the results. It looks so graceful in the air, has quite the presence.

And to take it from a box of sticks to what she is now is one of the most satisfying things I have ever done i this hobby.

Got a few more flights on it now. I have gone to a little bigger battery to give it a touch more nose weight and that seem make it a bit more stable.

Now to just get some warm weather and start practicing for the SEFF LMR contest this spring.

That is great you are getting some good flights i. While in the shop digging out some wood for a plane I'm working on I found my kit of the 15 powered Butterfly powered soarer that I may have to build.

A friend of of mine has a butterfly he has converted to electric. He put a power 25 eflite motor on it. A bit of overkill but it still floats really nice with power off.
