Default BIG DUST- SUCCESS

First flight with my new big dust 66" long wing span 49" engine ROSSI 90 DF weight 8 lbs. Had problems with launch cart so two guys did a hand launch, the plane flew great , rock soild, long glide path, top speed a little over 100 mph est. Need to do some work on cart to keep the plane on it unit has enough speed.

HI XXSPEED! I like the space alien camo pattern[8D]! What size prop do you figure will give the best performance with the ROSSI 90DF? I would make a wild guess at a 10-10 APC, but I don't have any experience with hi-perf 90s.

Replace Rossi 90 with Jet 90L more power, have 9 flights and it keeps getting better.

Dave 03B--Probable next weekend a friend said he would take some video and post it. Got to try a slow( high alpha) pass, so far all my flights were speed.
