    I was surprised at how quickly it rotated as well.

    CARF prides itself in making light weight planes made out of composites. Combine that with TV, that gives it a real short takeoff distance and combined with the flaps, makes a short landing. My model (50cc) has even kevlar hinges to take 3D beating.

    This is the one that is really impressive. Just made it's maiden.

    They need duct tape the camera man down better though... centering was all over the place.
