On a unrelated topic......Flew my new plane 2day...A very sexy Zero!. Can't wait to fly the one due out soon in the patch.

Clocked at 137km downwind on its second pass. Was a little faster than I expected and was a real "white fluffy Bunny" to land even with flaps down. Take off was also very hairy with heaps of right rudder and a tad up elevator needed to stop it from nosing over. I'll post a movie of a few low passes next week.

If your wondering its powered by a Thunder Tiger 4 stroke 91 motor, Build time was 85 hours, take off weight was 3.6Kgs, Wing span 62 in, CG was 110mm back from the leading edge, cost $2,474.00 from woe to go.

No doubt there are a few more RC pilots in these forums...it would be nice to see what you are all flying?
