Default PROTEC Butterfly

Anyone out there who's new to indoor flying should rush out and get one of these. We had seven or eight in the air at out last indoor meeting and these little models are such a delite to fly. They make the perfect basis for a one model competition too. We had four pylon racing round two chairs spread 8 metres apart . Really good fun. Ok we did find a weak spot, well i didnt my mates did with theres (must be rough fliers) The fuselage broke on three of them across the front wing support point. I suggest sliding a piece of alluminium tube inside the carbon rod fuselage to give it the extra strength it needs through the alignment holes for the cabane struts and u/c mounts. One other thing too the shirt buttons supplied for the wheels are just too small the dammed prop hits the ground even with the tail on the floor. [sm=thumbup.gif][sm=sunsmiley.gif]

Turning circles about 3 foot! looping radius about 5 foot. Standard motor which is a gws rip off sucks!. Use a gws s1 on a 9x4.7 prop, you can do rudder touches the lot then. Geat flier
