This thing is a blast!
This will be the 8th FT plane i've built so far. I originally scratch built it as a slope soarer only and it did alright but i never could find the right combination of wind, slope, or battery weight on the Oregon coast and besides i'm a pretty novice flyer (i break a lot of props). I live about 10 hours from the coast so i figured the air frame would delaminate before i got back to try it again so i threw on my "B" pack swappable power pod out of my simple cub with a 1000 mah 3 cell and a 10x4.5 prop (too big and drained battery fast but i had a lot of extras) and took it up. What a blast! it got tossed around a lot in the 15 mph wind but it still had unlimited vertical at 80% throttle and wasn't hard to fly. Acrobatics were fun and easy and I was very pleased for a half hour experiment. Now i just need to work on my landings or make some landing gear for it as it has a very long glide slope and i way overshot my landing on final and broke the prop
