Re: 3D_Kid's new build.

OK, flew this plane for the first time at our fly-in yesterday. This plane flys great! Even in the wind! Every body liked watching it. ON the second flight I started to do some torque-rolls. I had one guy offer to buy it from me, I told him $550 lol, that's about what I have in it. Very nice plane!

Re: 3D_Kid's new build.

I will be wringing mine out Monday and Tuesday (vacation this week). The little Yak really doesn't fly like a little electric does it. After Tuesday I will be putting together my 30% SD 260 with hopes of a maiden by the weekend.

Glad it worked, but I am always amazed that A) clubs allow, and B) people choose to do maiden flights at fun flys.......

You see, the guy that first maidened it said it should-have already been done before the fun-fly, but it couldn't because guys from our club our lazy bums and don't come down at all recently cause theres 5 mph wind. But its fine though.

Why do you need OTHER people to maiden YOUR plane?
