built the skimmer from a post a while back ,as the weather is gonna cool down later in the week ,took a chance for a maiden .
test glide was nice and floaty but the rest was a little bit iffy ...needs a bit more work !!
Glad to see her fly.. here is me with the balsa version in 1997 after a week of building from kit. Crashed her first flight hit rudder trim on hand launch. Went around me in a 60 degree bank like 4 times befor catching a wing tip. Battery blew through the fuse, tail broke off. Rebuilt her that night then flew at funfly next day. First few flights I put her down in the field. Once I got the hang of her she flew great until I hit a catch fence a few years later and broke the spar. One thing to keep in mind it was a designed with a heavy 400 speed motor and nicad. So depending on the weight her characteristics may be a tad Could be to light causing the osolation dono. If you get a folding prop and get her high she glides nicely.
