Yup... Horizon has a video out of it called the Mini Vapour I believe.

What bugs me is that they're making so much money off of carbon fiber and saran wrap

Time to do some copying - LOL.

Thanks

Hi
Try installing the components as shown, it will be pretty close, then you can move the battery to find the right CG. I probably mentioned the CG somewhere in there but there are quite a few pages, I might look around later.

Re: Blue Foamie

Here's the last picture.

That's myself with
a 27" Axis and a 28" Axis

I found the 27" to be an excellent flyer, I might make it in blue fanfold, as soon as Ray comes back from Libya, he's doing some computer work at some refineries.

Re: Blue Foamie

Hi all
Well, our first indoor RC day turned out to be a big success... Had 20 pilots registering, and from what I hear, more will come to other events...
Bryan Mailloux of Tillsonburg, put on a demo F3P Basic event and the guys are all eagar to try this, which is slated for our January 5th event.
Looks like a great season is on the horizon..
Some pics of yesterdays happenings
Enjoy fellows, and plan on attending at least one of our events over the Indoor RC season
Oh yes, Jimmy Prowse got there in his FANTASTIC Ford coup.... A real treat to see this...
Art.

It was a great day and fun to fly there. Scale-wise it was about as square as BMO quarters were wide, but not quite as high. I think it might have been 30' ceilings?

Either way.... we had fun. Look forward to flying with you again Gaston.

Thanks Jason
I'm hoping to get an assignment in your area, unless I can convince my wife to go on a trip...
