Thread: E-flite Sea Fury
04/05/2009 13:36:10
Sorry for the delay in replying Shaun, things have gone a bit haywire for me the last month.  Had another 6 flights with my 114 yesterday and off again later for another 6 (I have 6 Lipos!)  Found a good paint match for the dark sea grey upper surfaces: Tamiya Acrylic XF-54 Dark Sea Grey!!!!  Not found a decent match for the underside yet, but the white doesn't show so much anyway.
Funny you should have mentioned the SR177 because I had it in the car this morning to take down to Cornwall for a first flight, but I decided to stay in Brixham instead so the maiden has been put off yet again.

After waiting 4 months I finally managed to get a first flight in with mine the other day at Osbornby.  Following Shaun's "adventures" with his Sea Fury I was ready for the worst...........
 
It didnt have any problems taking off from the grass (but the field is like a bowling green), gear up, climbed away nicely, levelled off and turned downwind to sort out the trims.  Except the trims didn't need touching at all!  Then followed some aeros and low passes until the 5 minute timer went and a greaser of a landing.  I had 6 flights altogether and each one was a blast.  It looked the business against a clear blue sky and I was very impreessed with the flying qualities.  The only slight down side is the way a foamie looks tatty so quickly, but this is a great little model and one I would throughly recommend to anyone.
 
I will now make some plasticard undercarriage doors and tidy up the UBEC installation before the next session.

"I realise there are problems with the free plan and presume a new plan is shipped with the cnc pack.

What problems?  Can't see anything on the home page or the "Special" web page: http://www.modelflying.co.uk/news/article/mps/UAN/286/v/1/sp/

Thinking about this as a winter build.

I didn't realise you used a proof reader

To be honest, anyone who followed that link without realising the error probably needed cheering up!
