    Very cool... I had just stumbled onto this video in YouTube a moment ago before coming in here. It does appears to be a well designed airplane. A nice up close look too .. thank you.


    Jay just ordered one of these last week too so I'm eager to hear your impression of its flight envelope.

    Noice ... I just seen this come up on YouTube

    It does require forward momentum to stay in the pocket but again you were fighting some wind too. I wanted to see how it would glide on its own.

    Cute little plane and does not appear to be difficult to track on LOS. Even in the video I was able to follow it along quite well.

    Vertical ... that can remedied with 4s .. a prop change .. little things like that. Then you could probably hover it better ... lol.

    I'll give it chance yet once you had the opportunity to trim in a little better but I am impressed. It does appear to perform quite well.

    Nicely done Dutch !

  6. Thanks Tom :)
    yeahhhh.. it wouldn't be hard to turn it into a rocket ship at all :p I'd personally go for a 4S capable ESC and leave the rest as is (yeah.. the motor will probably not live long, but who cares :p)

    Pretty easy to keep track of indeed yes :D (shooting in 4K and then using that as a zoom helps :$)

  7. And.. yet another video on this plane :)

    Quite an 'interesting' launch & landing this time :D Anyway.. the video is more about a different elevator setup I tried.. worked out well! :)

    I was surprised at how well it did glide in after seeing how susceptible it is to a tip stall.

    She is a little different animal but still an very interesting plane.

    Well done Dutch.

    Wellll.. I have had it crash (stall) in a glide-in landing like that so it's definately not the kind of plane you can go grazy with :D
    Which is Good I think.. Not every plane should just be easy :)
