Default Giles Creek

Hi,
no info yet but I have the box lting in front of me. They really did a good job I must say. Nice finish and everything seems to fit perfectly. I am planning to use a ZDZ40 (The Sportsman it's on sale for everything incl drill jig, battery, charger, ... for $450 at chiefaircraft). I know it's a lot of power but the RCS 1.8 - that would have been the alternative - weights just a few ouces less but has also 1 hp less.
Check http://www.rcshowcase.com/html/galle...lery40_60.html this fellow has a Creekhobbies Extra with a ZDZ40 - it sound promising!
Good luck!
Rainer

I just put my first flights on the Giles. I have a Y.S. 140fz and have enough power to pull out. The plane flies very well. It will Knife edge very well with little coupling. Once I move the cg back it should eliminate the coupling. I have to add some more right thrust. and move the cg back a little. For $250.00 it is well worth the money. The quality is on par with my Great Planes Patty. I can't believe how it flew actually. It will pop right up into a hover from slow speeds without dipping a wing. TQ rolls were easy to control.
