Very cool... I had just stumbled onto this video in YouTube a moment ago before coming in here. It does appears to be a well designed airplane. A nice up close look too .. thank you.


Jay just ordered one of these last week too so I'm eager to hear your impression of its flight envelope.
Fly like your mad at it.

Noice ... I just seen this come up on YouTube

It does require forward momentum to stay in the pocket but again you were fighting some wind too. I wanted to see how it would glide on its own.

Cute little plane and does not appear to be difficult to track on LOS. Even in the video I was able to follow it along quite well.

Vertical ... that can remedied with 4s .. a prop change .. little things like that. Then you could probably hover it better ... .

I'll give it chance yet once you had the opportunity to trim in a little better but I am impressed. It does appear to perform quite well.

Nicely done Dutch !

Thanks Tom
yeahhhh.. it wouldn't be hard to turn it into a rocket ship at all I'd personally go for a 4S capable ESC and leave the rest as is (yeah.. the motor will probably not live long, but who cares )

Pretty easy to keep track of indeed yes (shooting in 4K and then using that as a zoom helps :$)

I was surprised at how well it did glide in after seeing how susceptible it is to a tip stall.

She is a little different animal but still an very interesting plane.

Well done Dutch.

Thanks Tom
Wellll.. I have had it crash (stall) in a glide-in landing like that so it's definately not the kind of plane you can go grazy with
Which is Good I think.. Not every plane should just be easy
