tomorrow. 2 of us are brand new with two slow sticks. I painted mine
silver to differentiate my plane from the other guys. There has been
a lot of talk about one of the experienced RC guys doing the first
test flight. (1 is actually a test pilot for serious R/C planes)
I am thinking, it's only a slow stick and I want to take the first
flight. So...after a careful preflight, I'm just going to toss it out
myself and hope for the best. YEE HA. I'll let you know how it goes.
I actually thought trying some practice flights alone after work today
to get ready for the audience but...how would I explain a crumpled plane?
Sooo. I am way premature on this but what would you guys recommend
for a flying wing or similar? I was looking at a Zagi Fixx but can't
tell if it is discontinued. There seem to be some around but it isn't
listed on the mfgr's site anymore and they are clearing out the motors
and props. What was wrong with the design? I am also considering the
F-27 but can't find anything but a complete kit with transmitter. I
just want the plane and will put in my own motor servos, etc. I
figure that by the time I get the plane and get it together I should
have some time under my belt.
This is addictive and I haven't even flown yet.
