Absolut klasse Flieger für kleine Hänge und wenig Wind. Geht mit Ballast aber auch bei ordentlich Wind.
Vor allem bei hyperflight im hübschen Design und nicht so langweilig wie bei uns. Versand ging absolut problemlos und war in 5 Tagen inklusive Wochenende bei mir.

First review of this lovely model, so here goes. It's so tiny and everything needs to be handled with care during assembly. A five year old's fingers would suit better than a fully grown mans. Or tweezers. Very fiddly to build and time consuming thinking things through. In fact my wife said "if that plane came almost ready built, why have you spent hour upon hour in the workshop on it?" Enough said.... Instead of the 1 mm wire supplied for the aileron push-rods, I decided to use the same system here as for the the vee-tail push-rods, and found some 0.81 mm music wire and PTFE tubing. I had second thoughts after gluing the tube between the servo aperture through the spar web and out the back to align with the aileron horn, but was too late. In hindsight it was the right decision - very precise and zero control surface slop. There is so little room at the front end, that when all is installed, there is barely 1 mm clearance between the elevator servo output arms and the slip on nose section. I used a 600 mAh 1S Li-Po that fitted snugly but the MPX Rx 5 Light had to sit behind the wing L/E in the fuselage void. All a bit tight especially as I was at a loss to understand how to wire up the aileron servos to the 4-pin connector, so I did it traditionally passing each servo lead through the small aperture back under the wing and into the Rx, fixed as far forward as space allows. Needed 29 gms lead up front to balance at 60 mm root chord and AUW is 266 gms. Don't skimp on servos, just stick with what Neil recommends.
Flying. Maiden flight this evening. From Colley Hill, south west of London. Not quite the Rhone Alps, but nice anyway. Part of the Surrey Hills ANOB. Wind was perfect out of the south west at 10 Kts and very smooth. I had set the control surface throws exactly as recommended by Pierre Rondell [see link to his piece above], to the mm. Flew straight off as if on rails, couple of clicks of down trim and all perfect. Thanks Pierre. Quite some plane. It just goes where you point it and fast, but because it's small and light, not at all scary like a full size F3F screaming around the sky. Just lovey and so pretty - I waited till Neil got in some in stock with pink honeycomb design. The 2 mm camber change to thermal setting really does slow it down, but it didn't need quite the amount of elevator / flap compensation, so I've now dialed most of that out. Simply stunning performance. As it says on the tin, Micro plane, Maximum fun.
It cost a shed load of money, but I love it already. Drove all the way home with a happy smile on my face. GM.
