hi I built the can-do when the plan first apeared and have had many flights since , three of our club members also built it after seeing mine I have lost the pic of the build but here is a pic of it with three other models from the RCME free plan range

the Clean Sweep , the Harliquin and the last the Vector all fly very well and always liked at the fieldp5172961.jpg at the club

My model is finished but still need to have it readied for flight, namely, programming the radio. See it here on it's first outing.

Hi all!

Finally the maiden flight was accomplished! Last Saturday at a very appropriate venue - the meeting of the 65th anniversary of the Lisbon Aeromodeliing Club. And it won a distinction: the most radical design present!!

No flying pics yet, but see it here about to be launched. I'm holding the Tx. and H. Ladeira is about to send the model skyward.

Flew slower than I thought it would be - my heart thanked! One minute or so into the flight, the horizontal stabilizer became detached and was being held by the bellcrank only. A landing without issues occurred and it's been repaired by now.

Another flight will happen ASAP! Stay tuned!

On ther same day my Aermacchi AM3C Bosbok also maidened. See it on the appropriate thread.

After many flights I uprated mine to a 3000Kv motor and wow what a difference, I called it my rocket on rails. I had to fit undercarriage on mine as we fly off concrete. It did not lift off one day due the angle of attack with the air and it disintegrated at the end of the runway but will be building another with the mods incorporated that I tried on the Mk1. Overall a fantastic flyer.

What mods did you add Colisace?

Mainly inserts to take the undercarriage in the wings, a steerable nosewheel but has to give the nose an upward angle. The 3000Kv motor and 2500 battery. Separate servos for ailerons and elevators. Next one will also have a rudder and all moving elevators coupled to ailerons.

It'd be nice to see your model, Colisace. I also thought about installing an undercarriage, as I seldom have the opportunity to fly off grass. The nearest you can get is what you see in the pictures, with small bushes around the flying field. They are quite handy, though. They have softened a lot of landings from many aeromodellers, including my Can-Doo and Cartoon Cutlass

Regards,

Paulo

I have posted some pictures previously on this thread but the mk2 is in the building queue at present. Will post as soon as I can. Try a 3000 motor and you will not be disappointed.

Colisace,

I've seen the pics now. I forgot I could do it by clicking on your username.

Looks good and certainly facilitates launching and recovering the model.

After the next flight I'll check if performance with the recommended setup is fine for mild aerobatics or if I really need to upgrade the motor. I'll keep this space posted too.
