Took me a little to figure out how to get the props and cone on.

Had to get the tail assembled and all that

Not a lot of space to work with

I have since rearranged a bit to get more space or the servos to work without hitting stuff

It's maiden flight will be recorded using a USB camera taped to it and a video camera pointing at it. I'll be sure to share. Lol

Do you have the pontoons for the wings?? Are you going to try a water landing or try to ease it down in the grass??

You stand at one end of the field and fly, while I stand at the other and catch it. What's the worst that could happen? It's fool proof! LOO

So down like a lead balloon. Apparently battery placement is important. Broke stuff, gluing it back now. Maybe it will still fly, I dunno. And I isn't remember to turn the camera on for the .098 seconds it was in the air. Hmpf, now that I have the battery where it belongs I'll try again. If everything goes back together.

I got the broken stuff glued back on last night. Gonna take another whoop at it today. This time I'll turn the camera on. I have the battery where it belongs and I guess we'll see what happens. Loo

Flight #2 has been postponed until Sunday. I'll have plenty of space where I will be, and I'll have someone to "launch" it so I don't have to hold the plane and controller at the same time. Loo

If you want someone there that has some flying experience, I'd be glad to offer moral support...or laugh hysterically at you when you crash it!

c'mon, post the video. even its 10 seconds long. it would be nice to know how a flight would be with Capt. Dirty at the controls. :)

"ahh, this is Capt Dirty speaking, today we expect beautiful weather for flying, and an overall good flight".
