Hi Kc.

Well spotted - I actually had not noticed myself.

Fingers crossed that it will not make any difference.

Good luck with the Mini Frantic build...

It's pretty much done - I can't believe how slow I've been (enjoyed it though).

Not too sure where the CofG should be. I have balanced it at 3 inches behind the leading edge of the top wing. What has anyone else used? Also, what size prop? (I have a 9x6 on but have not put it on the watt meter yet).











When I fitted the landing gear I found that the elevator was touching the ground. After a bit of head scratching I added a horn to act as a skid. On testing, it was acting more like an anchor so I have fitted a small wheel. It might not be man enough for the job but we will see.

Popped over to the field today with the Mini Panic for it’s maiden voyage. The wind was a bit gusty but not too bad. Took a deep breath, opened the taps and away she went. After a bit of trimming she flew magnificently – should have had more faith in my building ability. Four flights later we both came home in one piece!

Nothing special - just a quick clip using a head mounted gopro
