After having a 4 site and an Extra it was time for something a little different so a good friend of mine was briefed and came up with a plan for me.
Last night I threw it together and thought you may be interested

1st Coat of paint added badly 

Guts out of a 4-site

With its UMX Brother the Afriel

Test flight this afternoon at our local indoor meet. It looks the part but will it fly?

Let us know how it gets on. Is it made from Depron or EPP?

It flew, and looked very well indeed!
Mark commented that it was little pitch sensitive -probably due to the short moment arm, and the whole model may well benefit from scaling up a tad ( 10% overall or so ).
I know Mark is hot-tailing it off to a comp tonight and tomorrow, so he'll likely not be here to answer for a few days

Thanks Tim,
Model is 3mm aero depron. I moved the battery further forward today and it flew alot better. I think my problem Sat was I was trying to fly it like a 3d model and not nice flowing scale lines. I will be doing a 10% bigger one just to see.
The reaction I got today at the F3P comp with it was incredible the guys loved it so I must be doing something right. I will keep you all updated and try and get some flying vid sorted.
Thanks to Ultimate for these pics from Saturday

And my F3p model the BB Epic lends some scale
