Great design--how does it fly?

Not bad, after all. At first attempt it didn't take off at all, so I increased wing incidence.
Then I flew it only for some minutes: stall speed is slow and it's fairly manouverable, for one that has few piloting experience like me

PS thank you for the appreciation

All custom foam cutting, or did you reuse some parts from other planes?
Comment by Lorentz on July 19, 2008 at 2:43pm
No parts from other planes.
Wings are cut from styrofoam, covered with balsa sheets and oracover white film.
Fuselage is made of glass fiber out of a custom mold.
Mold itself was built around a foam mockup.
V tail are two balsa strips covered with oracover.
Booms are obtained from two arrows.
Motor is an AXI 2820 with an 60 amps controller.
Batteries are 4 x 3000 mAh LiFePo4.
No "intelligence" on board, for the moment.

How much work dos it take to make this plane? looks great!!!

Sorry, been out for a while.
It took almost a year and a half.
Currently redesigning the wings with new profile.
Thank you for the appreciation, Wyliest

Doh, the wind blows a little stronger than that around here
