Well Sports Fans.... ,
Dentdoc stayed up till 2am last night to put the Vanquish together. Today in 10mph winds he flew the FAI "F" and "P" patterns with it a couple of times as he practices for the upcoming Pattern contest season and his goal of competing in the FAI team selections in July.
What a neat airplane!!! 48" span, about 46 ounces all up weight and it looks and flies just like a 2meter ship.
Here's a close up photo of DentDoc's finished plane:
No, that's not DentDoc in the photo. He told me I wasn't smart enough to operate the camera so he got me to hold the plane for him to take a picture to show it's relative size. For those of you whom I haven't met, I tower over Shaquille O'Neal at a mighty 9 foot 7 inches in my stocking feet, which should help you get some perspective on the real size of this plane:
