Hi Art

I shoud have mentioned that this all happened on Sunday, we're seeing more people every weekend, considering the weather still allows some outdoor flying, it's just a matter of time before we have to dress warmer....

Re: Blue Foamie

Got it finished, my lightest foamie for the size 116 grams 4.1 oz's
Hardly use the throttle to fly it. could use some air brakes to slow it down.

Hi Hank
Looking great I noticed the foam stiffener you added, I use carbon fiber but I know that works really well also, I've used the same method a couple times.
Thanks for the pics.

Re: Blue Foamie

Just about to put my S Bach together, having a hard time finding 360mah 7.4v batteries (sold out) any one use the 500mah (a little heavier)

You can certainly use 500's but as soon as you can get your hands on smaller ones go for it.
Nice to hear from you.

Congratulations on winning the event at the Otterville airshow, you're looking quite happy in the Maac magazine, awesome.

Hank
I've used the 250 with a Plush 6A esc, considering that the plane is very light, you'll rarely use full throttle, the 6A esc should work fine, 10Amp esc is also ok.
