    Back to the ground safely. One more flight was performed. I videoed that one, I think Bryan intends to post that on YouTube eventually.

    RE: New Biplane by Bryan Hebert - Alferma

    I followed the progress of the Alferma on Bryan's web site and it's great to see her finally flying. Hope to see the video soon and hear more about the trimming process.
    Thanks for the images, the model looks awsome.

    Hey Arch thanks. Well, it was 55deg! But we had to cut the grass on the runway before I could fly

    the Bipe flew SO well I think I`ll keep it!

    My first thought as well.

    Being a creation of the Zen Master, you know it flies like a dream.

    But those vestigial prongs of landing gear need to be tucked into their little wells. Without delay.

    Hmm... does FAI permit hand launching and belly landing? They don't score take-off and landing, after all.

    Can't wait for the video!

    I apologize, I'll get some of those posted too. I was just so mesmerized by the view of the belly on knife-edge.

    RE: New Biplane by Bryan Hebert - Alferma

    Here's one of the few straight and level passes Bryan did during the first flight. I think they're just a little out of focus because I was having to use manual focus the whole time because with a telephoto lens shooting about 2 - 3 pics per second doesn't auto-focus worth a darn.

    RE: New Biplane by Bryan Hebert - Alferma

    Great to see some home grown US models... just like in the ol' days.
    Couple of observations.
    It appears very long nosed/short coupled. Could be camera angle or designed as such. Comments?
    Also appears to be carrying some serious positive incidence on the wings. Is that the case?
    I've use you Triangulation method and have become very happy... specially the forward CG, that in itself, really soothed out my flying.

    RE: New Biplane by Bryan Hebert - Alferma

    Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to witness the Alferma in action as Bryan put this new bipe through some more test flights My take on the the Alferma:

    This plane is a jewel. As most of us know, to see a plane in pictures and then see it in real like are two totally experiences. Seeing this plane in person far exceeds the pictures- for the better of course. And though I am a close friend of Bryan, the designer, he would be the first to admit I am not scared to give him my honest opinions on things- good or bad/right or wrong. Bryan is a TRUE artist and craftsman, and his year and a half worths of time invested in this plane showes in the intricate attention to detail. However, most, including myself, are not surprised to found out that Bryan has built yet another aesthetically pleasing design! lol. [8D] From an engineering standpoint, I was most impressed with the Alferma. The different construction techniques are very impressive, and a testament to Bryan's ingenuity. Suffice to say, that Bryans accumulation of knowledge from 20+ previous designs shows through on this biplane! MY personal in-flight observations of the Alferma have really solidified my belief in Bryan's Triangulation Method and its application to ALL pattrern models- mono or biplane. After seeing what I saw yesterday, not much more than that can truthfully be extrapolated from the two test flights i witnessed- its just too early on in the trimming process to start proclaiming the infamous "greatest plane/needed one click of uptrim to fly perfect/does a knife edge loop by itself" stories. I CAN say without any doubt; however, that never have I seen Bryan smile more before, while, and after each test flight, which only makes me want to have one of these things more than any sales pitch could! What really needs over-the-top praise here is the designer, Bryan! I am infinitly lucky to live in the backyard of someone who has devoted more time to this hobby working in his shop building/designing (even while most of us are asleep) and flying pattern, than i have been alive! Thank you Bryan! And im not just saying this because i REALLY would like to have an Alferma! LOL

    What happened to the Shark?

    http://www.oxai-rc.com/main/Detail.aspx?ID=61&DID=340

    OXAI stopped the production of this already ultimate Bipe.

    I am flying one shark and in the process of procuring a second one.

    Great flyer and this is an evolution of the things Bryan learned from the Shark.

    RE: New Biplane by Bryan Hebert - Alferma

    Because Brett will probably steal my Alferma, (it was designed for him with his input and a few of his Ideas) I`ll plan on flying my proto Shark this season. Jason and Andrew also have a Shark But I`m not sure if they are planning on flying them.
    it`s a unique Airplane, I still love it!
