Default Great Planes Electrify Spectra (ARF)

Hello All;

Took the Great Planes Electrify Spectra (ARF) out again. Second flight this time.

1. First I had an instructor take it up for a trim flight
2. Then I flew it a little, then handed the radio to another instructor, so he can land it while I took these pictures.
3. Then I launch it myself and flew it then landed it.

When all people says that this thing tip stalls, I now know what they mean.

You may want to twist in a bit of washout in the wingtips. Just reshrink the covering while you hold the twist. This is a common practice with lightweight models. With a few degrees' worth, you can eliminate any tendency to tip stall.
