Construction / tuning:

Finally a foggy weekend provided the time to sit over this small
fighter-look-alike plane!

I do not describe the building as this is perfectly illustrated in various
languages in the provided manual! The building took two evenings and
went without hassle.

I used the motor of my retired Blizzard and the folding prop of the Easy
Glider Pro.

All fitted very well.

The Elevator servo I exchanged for a metal gear servo - Hitec HS 65 MG

As BEC I still had a no-name 40 Amp one in the drawer.

Now the plane is waiting for its first flight....


Flight Experience:

Well, the first flight ended rather quick - the
plane, after I was throwing it myself as no
one was at the field to help - from over my
head - banked left and I could not reach
the sticks fast enough - resulting in broken
blades and a motor cable that came loose.
I needed to go home to fix the minor damage.

Another sunny day in November 2011 brought the 2nd flight - and 3rd
too - I quickly learned that the best way to start the plane is like one of
the 3d ones - grab it at its body from the top and just send it slightly
angled upwards into the air! No more issues with banking! Important:
just ad 3/4 power - otherwise the banking keeps coming back!

Then on both of these flights after just about two minutes the BEC cut
off - I tested the lipos - no issue there! Finally I touched the BEC - it was
burning hot! The 40 A no-name BEC could not handle the power. So
back home again and I replaced the BEC with a MultiCont 54 Amps
one!

4th flight and onwards - no more problems - all resolved and this plane
is very fast and fun to fly! Great construction by Multiplex! Well done
again!
