I need to find a camera operator to heckle me while I fly...

a truly nice looking plane and it flys pretty good.

Thanks, Guys!  I think you are right, Ian...I think my wire is a little thin so when it hit the ground, I got a little bend.  When I'm back at the bench in a couple of weeks, I'm going to revisit that part so I can have more consistent prop movement.  That should help a lot!

Stay tuned...Dan

Flys better than many Guillows scale kits! Using your own prop helps mega much. From the sound, I am wondering if the prop is running freely, or rubbing on something. Looks really good in the air. Adding more rubber is a good idea.

Your initial flights are great.  She's showing great promise.  Thanks for sharing the initial trim flights!

Awesome, it's not easy getting a biplane to fly like that!

Here is the first little test flying.  I have high hopes with a little playing around.  Really looks scale-like in the air and doesn't need anything beyond scale dihedral (so far!).  The movable control surfaces are paying dividends too...

Thanks for looking,
