Surprised there isn't much on this great looking little plane here. Love the look of this little thing, had to have one,
wondering if anyone could advise the best settings for aileron, elevator and rudder for a nice mellow maiden flight?

Thank you.........

The Gee Bees where purpose built as pylon racers in one race one of these things lapped all comers!
Basically the principal was put the biggest engine in a plane with just enough wing to make it fly!
A general rule with aeroplanes is if they look good they generally fly good, so the Gee Bee doesn't
look so good to some and therefore both the real ones and models have been tricky to fly, most of
the real ones crashed and this is generally the rule with RC Gee Bees as well.

Until now, along comes E Flites Gee Bee has like a mini electronic gyro which helps stabilize the model.
Well that is the theory anyway hopefully some pic's of her maiden flight soon! Now feast your eyes on
this thing beautifully ugly!

Eflite have it sussed great box for transport and storage.








Maidened the Gee Bee today, always a bit scary first flights, no need with this beauty! Wow I am impressed,
now I am no great RC flyer but this thing made me look good or should I say the e/gyro made me look good.
Flies so nice, smooth, more than enough power and fully aerobatic. Not for the beginner, if you have mastered
an aileron rc plane she's mighty fine little machine! Poor pic's stills off video, sorry!





Thought I chuck in a B & W to give a dated look to her!
