Default My New Toy E-flite Carbon-Z Scimitar

Just finished assembling my new toy the E[/b]-flite[/b] Carbon-Z Scimitar

Took me all of 90 minutes

I fitted the fixed undercarriage but am waiting on delivery of the E Flite Electric retracts.

I feel a trip to a very cold flying field is in order very shortly.

Set up the mixed as suggested in the manual as this is going to be a hot plane to get in the air but can't wait to throw it around the british winter sky

That thing just LOOKS fast! Can you post a maiden video? That is if you can find someone to sacrifice their frozen fingers to take a video lol

Exactly as per the instructions including mixing in aileron with throttle to allow for torque rollMaiden should be interestingUsing a flight power 3700mah battery pack first which puts the CG right at the front and then I'll try a 3300mah which puts the cg at the rearWill report on maidens when the weather brakes. Hopefully get a video if I can find someone who isn't shivering
