Ifinally got the weather to cooperate on 3 May for the first test flight. The model has been ready to test fly since 1 Nov,2010. I did keep busy detailing the model. The model is of the 1914 Jeannin Stahtaube in the German Technical Museum in Berlin.
The model is 88 inch WS, 1500 Sq. In. WA and is powered by an OSFS91SII-P engine. The model weighs 9 1/4 Lbs.
Using my U/Tronics Control 4 channelsystem I control the Throttle, Wing Warp and Rudders. The 4th channel is not used. The Scale Wing Warp allows me to level the wings in flight and to doa Wing Wave as an optional maneuver. The Rudder control allows me tocontrol the line tension.
Besides the pictures here is access to a video clip taken during the flight.
