hi grandad, the plane flies really awesome, but i was wondering if theres any way to give the plane more range ? maybe different crystals in the radio and reciever might do it?

Flying in circles makes the pilot sick, all very entertaining.
Doc Ink
they both got some nice flights, I think it looks really cool flying
Imagine hearing a rotary sputtering and then hearing tiny machine guns blasting the ground around you like in the movies!



Edit: More sound effects!

thanks for posting. some thoughts. the view at 1:01, suggests that, as a result of the stabs being Over-large, the model has a tail-heavy dom. as a result of the model having zero-dihedral wing(s), the use of two-channel control was not a good idea (by the manufacturer). so, in all cases, buyer beware cheers googletranslate

Just watching this video and spotted what may be a UFO in your video. If its a lamp post then it's very tall and I took a screenshot and still can't see the pole when I zoomed in. You will know if its a lamp post so what do you think? Watch from 07:05 just to the right of the white houses in the sky and you will see the dark line in the sky. Just had another look and it could be the TV antenna on the house, but still looks a bit out of place.
