I think we should all take turns flying here in Alberta and then have a vote to see which flight was the best. Just a thought.

I have only ever seen my buddies Bee Gee ARF on the ground. I was away for work and he put it in.
I think he might have forgot it is not a 3D plane.

Cool Looking Though, Good Luck

Hi, I just maidened mine about two weeks ago. I have a Saito 150 on mine and did the same as you checked and double checked everything. The plane flies great but it is crosswind sensitive as they tell you so I will not even think about flying in a cross wind (yet). The plane handles like it's on rails although I did not do too much other than circuts. The landings are different as it does slow down fast so what I did was go up high and cut the throttle to idle and watch the transition and then i set up first at half to quarter throttle but the torque almost made it too much of a fight so I went around again came in full throttle about 20' above the runway and cut throttle and dropped her in. It was a good landing and stayed on her wheels (luck ?????) we'll see next time out. Hope this helps and good luck - let me know how it goes. Beautiful looking bird in the air too!
