Default BA-Koi ready for test flights

Thought I would post a picture of my latest creation which is actually the test bed for a future kit. I called it the BA-Koi due to the fact that it uses a modified su-di-koi fuse. I went with a straight wing, longer tail moments, larger control surfaces. The point was to find a happy medium of the funflys available. I am looking for great tumbling, very slow flight without tip stalling, as well as knife edgeing and of course hovering and torque rolling. I will post a flight report when the weather breaks..

Looks nice. I would like to hear flight reports too. Looks to me like the wing section looks thinner than the typical profile?

Default this is a keeper and a kitter

I was able to fly the BA-KOI today and what a blast. Rock solid flight. This is a go where you point it plane. Knife edges are so easy it should be a law against it. Maiden flight had iverted flat spins which seemed to rotate around the prop nut, very tight and slow. Upright flats where the same. Very low inverted passes and continuous low and slow inverted flight. Some of the tightest inside and outside loops. Very tight and controllable rudder turns. Tried to hover but missed the engine offset. I started at 3 degrees right thrust and took it to 3.5. The longer tail moments and control surface changes really set this design on fire. I then let Doug (STOMPER) Sterling take the BA-KOI for a flight and he was shocked as well as how stable of a airplane this is. Building 2 more real soon. Another for me and 1 for STOMPER. Have a good one, BAD ANDY

Stomper--you and your JR radios did have a good day at the feild yesterday and yes I have already posted in the radio room my problems from yesterday afternoon. SSSHHEEEESSSSHHH, twist a knife when a man is down and out with radio problems.. Later on, BAD ANDY
The pbf bibe shows promise and yes it does fly and is the most stable pbf in inverted flight I have yet to fly- Did I mention that that is a mvvs 49 on the nose of the pbf bipe? BAD ANDY
