WHAT DID YOU FLY TODAY???

  1. LOL, you have a solid blue plane and a blue sky ;) Glad the maiden went good. Take it out another day when the wind is down and fly closer to home. :) I think you will find it flies nice.

    Blue sky?
    Where did you get that idea?
    Blue skies in UK are as rare as hens teeth:D
     
  3. Like this guy we have at the farm?

    Took the SBach up to the field to test out the new 10x5 prop this morning. Which it does seem to give it quite a lot more punch I must admit.
    Would have been amazing if I hadn't messed up and reversed the ailerons too!!

    Bit of a botched landing after bringing it down as carefully as I could and nosed over mushing the nose where the motor mounts onto the centre cruciform. So, it has now had a bit of rhinoplasty and has a nice new nose holding the motor on :D

    No idea when it'll fly again but it was a handy test for the "Tundra" style undercarriage - it definitely works on wet, soggy, marshy ground :D

    Now back to drawing plans....
     
  6. If you can get it balanced the APC gas or sport prop is almost another 10oz of thrust at a small cost of a couple amps extra. ;)

    That's the one I've got on there - didn't take much persuasion to get it in the air that's for sure!
     
  8. So where is the video, always fun watching a master screw up and not do his pre flight check :D :D

  16. Annie test 30k wind with gust up to 45k at a chilly -9 (Andy ;) ) Annie handles the wind like a champ and is solid as can be , take off once I got it faced into the wind was like 2 feet and airborne she was. Very impressed with how it flies.

    Bit chilly? Yeah, never mind the wind though - how fast was it going?! It sounds like a storming gale! Props to you for not only maidening the A-10 but also handling those winds. Plane sails through it all like it's nothing!

    Took the Mini Scout out for a spin for the first flight of 2019. Nothing fancy today, still recovering from New Year's Eve.
