I've mentioned my Beanburg D1 Bostonian design in other posts but I've not posted a picture of it.  It's not finished in the photo, the engine detail, windscreen and nose block are not on it but I think you get the general idea.  I'll be flying it at the next O.F.F.C. meeting and if it trims up as it should I'll have time to get some videos.  Of course, as typical with my designs, I'm not satisfied with the way the fuselage goes together, and it's been redesigned slightly, but aerodynamically it will still be the same model.

More later.

The only trim adjustments that it needed was an increase of 1/2 degree incidence in the upper wing and a drag tab on the upper wing to keep the turn tight inside the room.  The flight for the video was in intentionally under 40 seconds since my old iPhone4 will not email a video any longer than that.  It was over 90 degrees (F) outside and the air conditioner was running full blast.  Not too much of a problem for the Bostonian, but noticeable with my Legal Eagle and a real problem for the guys trying to practice for the Penny Plane contest at the end of this month.
