Here is mine with new U/C, just got to fit the tailwheel and re-paint the legs and spats.

Bought one myself this very day from Steve Webb's at Frodsham, the reason for my purchase was lack of wheels for rough Winter fields.

Got plenty of models with wheels on.

Where did you get your spats from Ron? All the ones I have in stock are too bulky for the ES.

They were fitted to the U/C which was a spare for my eFlight Ultimate 2. They’re foam so are really light but will be susceptible to damage! I will probably coat them after I’ve repainted them to give them some sort of protection.

First flights today with danglies on. No dramas apart from the need to replace the tail wheel with a stronger one! AUW about 3lbs 3oz that is with a 3000mAh 4S Turnigy battery on board so landings are a bit on the quick side especially today with no headwind to slow it down. Flew for 6 minutes and had 65% left in the ‘tank’ and that was with some WOT passes plus big loops, rolls etc. Had to turn the aileron rates down as it is very responsive to the ailerons. Colour scheme not so good for a day like today, very grey, dull, overcast sky.

So, all in all, quite satisfying.

Nice one Ron!

I have to agree with you on a couple of points - I too found the low rates mentioned in the manual quite exciting enough for me! Secondly, I aborted a flight on Thursday as I just kept "losing" the model against a featureless, dull grey sky. I can't wait for the next good flying day to get it up there again! Lovely model.

I don’t think that it needs full length ailerons so I’m thinking (only thinking at the moment!) of cutting them down and creating flaps to try and slow it down for landings.

The copy of the original I built years ago started with full length ailerons. I soon cut these down to half size. Wish they would at least test fly some of these ARTF`s before marketing them since in many cases I can think of they cannot have done.

Given how responsive it is to aileron input I would tend to agree with you Martin.
