Great fun with all those touch and goes. She`s a very well behaved plane
Who would have thought Wildthing enjoying Low and slow?

I know, what's up with that???

Had Annie out for a short flight today also, cross wind just about bit me on takeoff.

Nearly a whoops moment again on take off, but nicely saved.
Wot, no Depron?

Annie hits the skies again. It amazes me how it as a bi-plane in the wind.

I did take out Annie also, still amazes me how good this bi-plane handles the wind.

Had Annie out for a couple spins also, flies so good but it's drawback is having such a fat fuse it is not very efficient for flight times especially in the wind. 2nd flight I did try a couple inverted , seems solid even upside down. 🙂

Very nice!
Yours seems to handle the wind much better than mine but then with a lower wing loading, a thick wing and rigging mine just does not go fast enough!

Great flights Jeff. I think you need to drive it in to stop the bouncing😃
As Annie was doing her set it reminded me of this Super Stearman.

Mine is not very fast especially against the wind, the IL2 has the same setup in it and it is 3 times faster and the battery lasts  twice as long. The plane is simply fat everywhere 😃 😃  .  It does handle nice though.

It is the one problem of having bendable landing gear, one little bounce and it is like you are on a trampoline. 🙂
