It takes quite a lot of runway to takeoff, and is quite a handful
on the runway. I suppose the pusher prop is the culprit for it's
takeoff squirrelliness. The time it really starts to shine is
60% throttle in the air. At this speed everything smoothes out and
it then begins to fly as if on rails! It really gets moving once the
prop gets unstalled and Exhilarating 5 Min. flights are not a problem.
I'm rebuilding it now and installing a set of Robart retracts. A plane
such as this looks looks so much more realistic with the wheels
tucked up on a flyby.
This was after the 1st flight at the
Devil Mt. Electric Flyin Oct. 98
