Default Tigershark Video

As there were no Magnums at our site on Sunday, I had to make a Tigershark video instead.
This is my model, flown by myself, Theo and Paul Skinner ( any parts that are very low or impossible are Paul!!!!)
It is only running a 9x7 prop at the moment, and the motor is still running in.
I will get some more footage when I have the 8x8 on and a few more tanks through it.
Let me know what you think.

Nice vid... what do you use for editing?

That thing sure moves for something that gets called the "Magnums little brother"

Dave... for christs sake, bolt on that West ... you won't recognise the plane. And it has a throttle you know, you can always cut back...

I think the Irvine going to be to heavy for it, going to need several oz of lead on it, go on bolt on the Westy, you know you want too and you can always set up your tranny to limit throttle travel

Someone was flying a Tigershark with an Irvine 53 and just engines pipe on Sunday.
Much quieter!!!! but nowhere near as quick.
Put the West in. This was my first experience of flying a fast delta, and after 2 or 3 passes at half throttle I was ready to open her up! Stop messing about!!!!!!!!
Now I want even more speed so will be changing the prop tomorrow.

By the way, thanks for the positive comments.
I use ulead studio 7 to edit. Its nothing special - I really want to get Pinnacle studio.

More vids soon including Tigershark Magnum head to head.
