hate to tell you, but it probly wont go up. it should, on the other hand, glide with left and right, but its not gonna go up without a lipoly battery.

hobbydawg,

Good work. I can help you with the prop. You can make one from the plastic of a 2 liter coke bottle. Cut a piece 1/4" x 1 3/4". Mark the middle and poke a tiny hole with a pin. Cut the prop shape and balance it using the pin in the middle hole. Now enlarge the hole so it fits on the motor pinnion (gear). Try poking with a pencil. Now hold the middle with plyers and twist each side in opposite directions. I have a control line plane using this type of prop. Check this thread for a video. Actually, in the video it is using a prop made out of thick paper and not my new prop. The new one works much better.

i made a new one which i call the mini commander. it has a 12 in wingspand and can have up to 20 min flight times but it needs a bigger wing becaue it cant mat a lot of lift at slow speeds. right now it will fly but just glide no matter if the thotle is on or off.
