Nothing spectacular here. Just wanted to show things I build do actually fly. ;-)
The motor I had installed at the beginning of the day developed cracks. I grabbed what I thought was a spare only to find it was for one of my other planes and wasn't quite long enough in 3 loop form. I remade as a 2 loop motor and pressed on.
I fumbled the camera, so the video is in 2 parts. Total flight time was around 1:45. Nothing memorable, but just a nice flight. Weather was great and if I'd had the right motor, a 2 minute plus flight would have been easy.

Lovely flight.
But you were a little brave. Smiley

I agree with Gossie. Just as well you didn't have the full power motor. I think you would have easily  flown outside that nice field. It is a real floater.

Thanks, guys. I launched from the middle of the field. There was no wind at ground level. If I had tried for a 2 minute flight, I would have launched from the right side of the field so the plane would have drifted across to the left. I wish there was a bigger field close by, but no.
