Cheers jeff I did not know you were recording lol, It flew a little tail heavy but a quick adjustment of the lipo soon sorted it out, Its a nice plane to fly and without rudder its a little different to what I'm used to.

I've got the cargo plane set for its maiden tomorrow if the weather holds out, I reckon its going to ba a slow flying plane jeff, I ran a few ground tests today and the front wheel constantly turned to the left which meant takeoffs would have been hilarious.

Sorted it now though, for the maiden its locked into the forward position and if the plane performs well I'll put a steerable nose wheel on the front.


Sorted the roundels on the spitfire and I'm very pleased with the outcome, already on the plane and no need to waterproof them either, now thats got you thinking?

Nope, because they are sat on the kfm step i put two sections of blue packing tape on the cutting mat side by side (almost touching) i have a compass with a blade installed so it cut a perfect circle.
Placed one half of the circle on the step the other on the main wing, when viewed it looks like one circle, did the same thing for the red insert and it looks very effective and waterproof.
