Default Desert Duster

Most of the bugs are worked out. Next, I am going to change the way I attach the flying wires as they go slack. Other than that she flies great.

The first flight didn't go very well and she only stayed airborne for about a minute. I am new to "modern" E-flight and didn't realize how important it is to charge a NiMh just before using it.

The next day I changed the prop and with a fresh charge got in a 5+ minute flight before I had to bring it in. I was flying at a local airport and had told them I would probably only be in the air for a couple of minutes!

Any way, here is my Desert Duster climbing out after about 30'.
