Congratulations George!
I had my version of the Cessna out at the National Building Museum in Washington DC.  I did not spend as much time as I would have liked wringing it out.  The Maxecuters have a 6 gram minimum weight for no-cals.  I think I'm off to a good start, and think this ship has great potential.  I'm wondering what a good time would be for a 6 gram ship in a standard high school gym....any feedback anyone?

decided on a whim to try a 10x16 prop and it flies OK on .085 x 16" loop, but above 1250 turns, it will just nose up and do one nearly full stop stall after launch, then either resume flying normally or flip on its back. 

That sounds to me like it needs some down thrust.

I will give that (downthrust) a try and let you know what happens!

(Wally) As far as times for a 6 gram version in a typical gym, I can only say I see one every Sunday, built stock, that is doing around 2:10 on out of box 3/32" Tan SS.  Don manages 3+ minutes via house thermals, magic and secret incantations Wink
