    Glad it flew well, without snapping those arms. The old Hangar 9 arms were stronger. I'd stick with the SWB's.

    Nice to see it in the air, and back down safe !

    Is the DA200 the engine of choice on the 55%'ers???? have many tried the DA170? If so, what was the final weight and performance?

    Great job! Time for a Mr E video !!!:yikes:

    That is what I am going to do my friend. Here is the first flight video. The wind was blowing around 25-35 mph.

    Bob, Another winner, Congratulations dude!! It really looks great in the air too!!! I'll have to wait till I get home for the video. The wifi signal at the job site is real slow, but I should not complain, I've been stealing bandwidth from the Panera Bread shop 2 store away. I must've missed it, what was the weight?

    When we weighed it on the scales we were out side and the wind was blowing a bit, so it is between 48.5 and 49.5 with the stock DA 200, so with the lighten 200 it would be around 46.5 to 47.5. and I am happy with these weights for an airplane this big. that really feels like a 40%er to fly.:biggrin:

    The plan right now is to be at nall on Wednesday the 11th, so I will see you there. I am going to help a buddy finish his 55% 260, then I have a 40% SD Models Yak that I am putting a DA 150 in with piped and shooting for around 35-36 lbs. I guess time will tell.

    He had a house fire and lost everything. Molds, jigs, the whole 9 yards. I don't think he is going to be "gone" forever, but there is definitely a long road to restarting his business.
