Default Indoors flying outdoors.

After creating

Just a few of my indoors I fly outdoors.
last few month number of extremely light indoor models, I have found it's too far to travel to nearest indoor sport hall so making most of it outdoors during indoor calms, LOL.

The coldest morning in history for this time of the year! It was 10deg. at 5-45AM when I started flying with 4 of my indoors, outdoors in dead calm. Rather nice but chilly!

Absolved 7 flights with micro fleet even before the semi-finale finished.

Same AUW, same power unit/prop combo but not the same power as the "Purple Swallow", after bit of fiddle I have upgraded the speedy from 10 to 20A to see what difference will it make.

Swap of the higher current speedy.

Beautiful little craft, and lovely piloting. I want to explore this side of the hobby. Where would I even begin? Assuming these are scratch built?

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, this is just another category in this wonderful hobby, ideal for indoor sports halls but I rather enjoy flying it outside in dead calm, just like this morning, the 1st. day of Autumn down here.
All scratch built, of my own design, takes some 100 hours to create with the best reward flying it, absolute magic.
Just working on another one slightly smaller to experiment with.
I have currently 2 fully complete larger frames for sale, easy to set up with 3 micro servos and little motor/ESC combo-for less then 50 bux, but nobody is interested after adverts, I think people are too scared of it, LOL.

This morn fleet + Bipe not in the pic.

Autumn morn fun. 1st of March.

My new project on the bench.

No, I'm in Austr. advers only on our sites, there's hardly anyone building or flying these types, just about forgotten craft.

Last night at the field before dark.

Eve at the field with Pinky.

I got a nice new indoor venue to enjoy my micro Pattern fleet for a variety of outdoors, rain or hail.

Bit of a change from outdoors.

Just completed my lightest indoor Pattern creation, "Golden Winglet", I have managed to keep it under 100grams, 98 to be precise plus 16 gram 2S/240mA lipo. More than happy with the result being built from 3mm foam sheets and carbon rods reinforcement at 90x98cm (S/L).
I'm intending to fly it also outdoors in dead calm, so took it out this morning for its Premier flight, not a perfect calm but pretty nice at very light puff of breeze up to 1.5 rate out from 1 to 10, (up to 1.5km/h) Being such a micro light and large flying surface area model, any sort of breeze can make it pretty unpleasant in the air but after few minor abrupt moves the model performed immaculate, another "Magnificent Flying Machine" addition to my fleet.

Under the knife.

Vertical fuse preps.

Painted with gold leaf wingtips feature.

Ready for action.

Morning test flight.

Golden Winglet in action.

Sunrise maiden flights.
