What an achievement Mr Roo. Ill not say too much until its flown of course. But all of us would like to know everylittle details of its maiden flight.I notice by your first posting that it is smack on a year since you started the project, and that's with it running alongside your completed fox build as well. Truly amazing young sir. :o

Roo-oo looking at your pic's, are you sure you haven't built one wing longer then the other?? :D

Fly with you soon. Terry.

Roo, you will not notice the weight when it's flying. The 27 s fly very well like the one to one version. The only suggestion is if you hand launch off the hill go for a day with a good head wind. Lovely looking model ! Regards John.
