Nice scheme!! You'll love it with the DA120. I flew Randy Brown's with the 120 and it is awesome!

Great Job Lou!!!



LOU: Make sure to keep the top hatch/canopy covered in the sun so it will not distort..... This does happen with heat exposure...

Temp: 90+, Wind 12 mph...

I wanted to wait for a better flying day, but I had to take her up.

All I can say is WOW!!!! What a beautiful flying plane.

Needed one click of up and one click of right. CG was perfict, with DA-120, Pro Flows and batteries up front. Inverted was hands off perfict. Plenty of power using a 29X10 prop. Only had 1 flight due to the wind and temp. I spent most of this flight feeling her out and landed. Came in like a trainer. I thought the colors I picked out were a little loud but in the air she looked great.

Dear Mr. Hempel,
Thank you for all your support and help during the build, and I will send more feed back and photos soon...
Great Combo with a DA 120
