    Well, we have the full approval of the Scale Police on this design in the form of my friend Paul.
    He has seen many scale war birds fly and says this is the best one for looks and flight envelope.
    He has flown it and simply loves the way it handles.:)
    (Oh by the way, he hasn`t seen Jeff`s Lightning yet)

  3. I now have two great warbirds to fly. :)
     
  4. I did have this girl out for a flight but no video, human error. She handles wind pretty good.

  8. You what, I flew it again today but no video, my camera is being a little beaaach . I think the start/stop button is flinky so when I think it is off it is still recording and when I think I turn it on it stops. ;) Could be old age too, :D

    HHHHMMMMMM, that`s strange. How close to Kamloops are you ?
    I sometimes get muddled with my Mobius but that doesn`t have a screen just a series of different coloured lights and you know I`m colour blind.:)

    I might decide to build this,it behaived really nice in your video Jeff,we both have the same spitfire do they fly about the same ? seems like it does.
     
  18. Very close to the same. We have never really finalized the plans on this one so I took it on myself to see what I can do. What takes Bimo 5 minutes on a computer takes me 5 days. ;)
     
  19. More progress :) Borrowed a couple servo boxes from @Sterling101 , pretty slick Leigh :) . Next prepping the elevator, epoxing in the wire to join the two surfaces and make them one. I join them first before cutting them off of the main plate, also because where the wire is the plate will be beveled not the control surfaces.

    Excellent work J
    Excellent work Jeff. This plane is such a delight to fly for prop fans like me.
    There is something about these low wing planes with a touch of dihedral that look so brilliant in the air.
    Much nicer than a modern jet IMO:)
