Very smart and very different. The steps/door is a great touch.

She Fly's!!!
 
Test flown this evening, just the once but really chuffed with this one, nicely balanced and surprisingly quick on the OS52FS, slow speed seems good but obviously need to test further, in flight pics soon.

Thanks guys, yes Tim ready for Greenacres, although I'll sneek a couple more flights in just to familiarise and explore all aspects of the envelope such as stall and spin recovery although she doesn't seem to have any nasty habbits so far; I find you can usually tell pretty quickly if things are going to be entertaining but Debutante was rock steady at all speeds although I did land with a little reserve speed in hand with it being the maiden. I will try and get some video also on the next outing.

Great! Isn't it a relief once that first flight is over succesfully?
 
What is next on the drawing board?

Not the best pics as it was pulled out of some video footage that I will post soon, still racked up four flights now and all looking good.
Whats next, well a couple of projects in mind but I think the Dawn Flyer, a sort of vintage design 48" span for 300watt electric, sort magnificent men stuff.

Certainly does, I was quite surprised just how clean she must be, gets her passengers to where they want to go pretty quickly. Fortunately slow speed is pretty good too, just more fun at the moment going fast, solid as a rock in the air thought witch is great.
Thanks for all the comments guys.

I've followed this thread from day one and it's so nice to see a project from start to finish. You must be very pleased and I can only add my congratulations to all the others. It's a real treat to see such a great looking model fly so well.

Take a breather David? its the only thing that keeps me sane sometimes, but need to take a little time out from my own designs to take care of a rather nice looking kit now!
