dear friends!
GOOD NEWS
she flies straight from the board, no trim issues so far!
i was able to test fly the day before competition. firs 4 flights of 1 minute was to set the timer speed.
Then moved the cables a little backwards and fun begun! This is my best F2B airplane until now, flyes graciously, straight, perform tight corners and round maneuvers with precision. One funny thing is that maybe due to the porky fuselage she looks slow on the pattern, but do it with confidence and precison, i could not be more pleased!
Kaz Minato did a great job on his design!
I placed 4th on the "sport scale" The rules on sport are 30% regarding static and 70% flight ( this was made to bring newcomers to scale world, even if they donīt build the planes themselves). I have achieved almost a perfect score on the Static ( i know, the rules are light regarding scale profile) and the flight was not so scale as i had only 3 flights before competition, so instead of a rehearsed scale routine i flew like an F2b ship, other thing is that electric engines lacks the notes for "realism of noise" so i was penalized on that as well.
Anyway i have reached my goal: finish a good F2B plane that resembles a full size bird. On the F4B competiton i went second with the Smith Biplane. Had excellent static score but flight was plagued by malfunction of the 3 cable system, i could not idle porperly.
Still absolutely happy with the competition outcome ( will make a full report sooner)
thanks a lot for the support you guys have given me!
next? well... letīs paint that Pathfinder LE and battle to see wich planes flyes better
