New power set up installed and re-maiden done... only a 7 mins flight till my 2200mAh battery died on me....

Big size wing to scratchbuild. Lots of carbon fibre inside? it looks really rigid in flight. Though you didnt pull that many G:s with your turns

Big wing - lots of lift. It looks nice, but seems kinda slow? Might me nice for some relaxing slow cruise FPV flight? How is your aileron responsiveness? it looks like you cant do a roll with it, very stable. That just might bring its own challenges if its windy.
Just call me Jomppa when we´re not fishing

There is no carbon fiber at all my friend! only a wooden round spar for the wing... The fuse is only a triangle box depron and the tail are stiffened with a thick bbq skewer. Thats all.

It is too slow to my taste to be honnest with you so I will try a E-Maxx 2822 motor and if that doesn't move it better... I'll cut the tip of my wing and place a 70mm EDF motor on top of the wing.

Need to try that.

The ailerons are very small not in length but in chord but are very efficient, I usually dial dual rates and didn't try full throw yet.
Rolls are out of the question, it is not really an airframe to do so, well at least not this one.

I changed my power set for an EDF 70mm, cut down my wing span from 80 inches to a 60 inches and it flew marvelously!!

Very unfortunate to land on a stone on my second battery pack which resulted on shock impact to break my twin tails and to mreak a bit my wing where it hit the stone and also that my nose cam didn't function properly so a very very short maiden video but it is not yet ready.

Instead I have three pictures to show you guys.

I repaired the Squale and flew 2 battery pack tonight... it was awesome!
Here is the video.

I think my keychain cam is dead now unfortunately as even after few hours charging it doesn't last anymore.

Ah well they are cheap anyway so time to buy a new one.

Still flying good the edf Squale... I'm flying 2 battery pack a day on it and I really enjoy it!
I have a new video, it is edited now but didn't have the time to upload it. I will post it later on.
