Default 160in C130 with tank maiden Flight

The tank


https://youtu.be/ldadxM-3eho

the flight

10s 5000 20c X 4. 16x12x4 blade props, 76 pounds

this was the very first flight, took a 1/4 in down elevator to get it to stop climbing. I think I will takes a little of the 3.5 pounds of led shot out the tail

Also 2nd flight (not recorded) go to use full flaps. Slowed down the best it could for its weight. Hope you like.

Wonderful. Good job. It sems to really handle high angle of attack well.

I love Hercs.

Nice project but its a shame your video has been ruined like so many others with all the horrible music destroying the actual flight sounds.

Oops, your fuselage star and bar is upside down. You are not the first beautiful warbird I've seen to have one.

Hey Mike,

Great job! the tank is too cool. Looks very realistic in the air.

Where did you get a kit or plans of this plan in this size? I'd love to do one someday.
