Those times are great, I've never managed double figures on my F1L yet, but it was only the second plane I ever built after a ministick.
I am still working on getting the rubber and prop dialled in. I like the way it flies but the RPM is too high for a decent time.
More work to do Smiley

Yes keeping the rpm down, I'm thinking of that as well. Given that the in-front-of-the-spar blade worked fairly well last week, I made another prop with a wider blade. My .01 sheets are generally about 1 1/16" wide, but this blade is 1 1/4", so I butt-joined about a 1/4" strip on the end with some thinned ambroid, then soaked and wrapped the sheets as usual, photo with new wider prop blades attached, if you look close you can see where I joined the strip in the upper blade. Also replaced the tail boom with a stiffer one, so that brings the total weight up from 1.09 to 1.14 g, getting close! Curious to see how the wider prop does this week.

OS film, nice stuff, cuts really easy, and it's pretty light!
