The maidens.
1) 40mm edf mirage 2000 did not make it. It was pilot error. To much control surfaces and I wasn't ready. Minimal damage. I will fix iy and try again.
2) 64mm edf mirage 2090 was a success!! What a friggin rocket!!! Oh my god!!! Was a bit nose heavy and hard to trim at first. Second flight was better with battery moved back and trim fixed.
3) twin 50mm edf F-15 took a nose dive. I didn't throw it hard enough. I will put 64mm wheels on and try again. Damage is minimal
I'll post vids tonight when I can upload them properly.
Also, I'm extremely happy I got 1 out of 3 success. The speed of the Mirage 2000 was exhilarating!!!
Link are here... enjoy and Crank up the volume for video 2 to hear the screamin' edf

Awsome...i'd like to see some pics of the insides. Also, you could put gear on it or you could Velcro a hook on the bottom and use a bungi launcher. I've use the bungee on my goblin and versa wing. Takes a lot of the stress out of launching them. It was Hai-Lee's idea and now I'm a fan.

Look for my thread about Mirage 2000's. I put lots of pics. If you want more I got them.
Also, I'm going to post more videos of the Mirage 2000 flying and some low passes. The camera man was an old retired guy who has issue with today's tech...
And, I just cut the 2 x 50mm edf's out of the F15 and am installing 2 x 64mm EDF's 3s FMS
