I remember this post very well. Haha very funny. Tks for repost. Cheers, Silvio
Got mine ready for maiden later. Here goes the night flight
The good old Alphajet.
G Luck with Maiden!
Well it flew fantastic before we lost the light at the airfield, two flights really nicely dialled in despite the high winds (again!).
Went for a launch for the proper night flight and I had a servo lock out and it just rolled off into the ground.
Not too much damage, just the nose, the servo and my pride.
Thankfully had the Eurofighter with me so had a couple of night flights with that instead.
Real shame as it looks incredible in the dark but that's mass produced servo's for you I guess!
Videos of the first two flights..
And second flight as dusk was drawing in -
Excellent flying, Sterling101! What did you think? How's the orientation when its lit?
Slow progress, still have to find some white leds locally rather then waiting a month.
Thats going to look nice!!
Orientation seems great, just a shame I had the servo fail before I could get it properly airborne at night.
New nose now fitted and it's ready to go again!
Can't wait to see what it looks like illuminated Jeff.
And you're going to love the flight characteristics - proper hoonigan machine
A nice pattern Jeff reminds me of my first Mk2.
That sucks, kinda just did the same thing a few days ago.
Both are now replaced so ready to try again. Quick bit of nose repair and it's about good as new again.
Sadly the rain and high winds are back today again...
Good luck! Don't know if you guys saw the Ampang Night Flying Club from Malaysia video. These guys were the original Alpha Glow Jet fliers who sent us their videos a few years ago...
Goodbye Note 7 Hello S7 Edge!
Just popped a spot of paint on the top.
Just got to wait for my led strips to arrive to put the bit into the nose now...
Very nice...there's another abstract painter in the house
I like where you're going with this.
I fancied something with angles and curves and it just came out that way free hand
Underside yet to be covered but thinking cricket tape to keep it clear and add some protection...
I tried some sort of Marvin the Martian thing on the underside of mine. I started out making a couple of turbines I think ?
Nice work there!
Well mine is together with paint, you guys make me sick of your fancy paint jobs. Everything is in just have to add rx and balance it so it should be ready for it's maiden soon.
