Piaget in the Park

Put a new video up of me flying the Piaget in the park. This has become one of my favorite planes. It is getting pretty beat up, and I really need to work on my Pluma bi-plane foamie. With spring days like this, if the wind would quit blowing (it did today!) I could really fly a lot.

Electrifly Pluma 3D

I picked up an Electrifly Pluma 3D at the LHS for $49. I figure on putting some HXT 5g servos in for the elevator/ruder and one of the 9g servos for the ailerons. I'm going to use the 24g blue wonder motor and a 10A BESC and figure on using 410mAh 2S (indoor) and 640mAh 3S (outdoor) lipos. I sure like the way this plane floats in the simulator, so hope it is as good in real life.

I need to find a good place to fly indoors, some time. It is amazing how well my piaget flies with 2S1P 460mAh lipos when the wind drops to just a whisper outside. Hovers get much easier. I still need to get better doing rolling harriers...
