I really liked at the 1:19 mark as you were heading into the sun. The light reflection of the wings was very cool.

Well, Video 1 looked like a bloopers real (I have had those days)...  :b0201: :b0201:  But you did a great job landing it anyway...  :t2946:

Video 2 looked awesome, great flying and smooth landing...  :t2030: :t2030: :t2030:

So did you figure out what went wrong with the gear?

I liked the landing in vid two. Came in a little hot and steep, but handled it well. Was that with all the flaps down?

thx dave :)

RC that was with Flaps/slats down + Rudders Toe-in, i did not try full wing span flap yet because i first have to get comfortable with it.

Well it was a pretty sweet landing nonetheless.

When you do try the full wing, will is slow down the bird a lot or have you tried it yet?

more lift and slower yes and more careful because of stalling... i need someone behind me to flip the switch and so i can be able to have both hands on the sticks and he can switch back quick if nessesary.

but firts i still have to do some setups... have to mix ailerons to elevators (delta mix) as elevator alone is critical pulling in a dive. i nearly lost the plane once!  :b0703:

Ouch! Don't wanna do that. Not with that plane anyway.

That is a beautiful plane Gary.
Tell me, after you land, does it slow down on it's own or can you reverse the EDFs or do anything to help it brake - like crashing into a tree like I do with my multi?  :t1815:

Great demo Gary :t2030:

I especially liked the take off into the sunset

IF FLYING R.C. WAS ILLEGAL... HER AND I WOULD BE CAREER CRIMINALS
