Congratulations Monz. The D VII looks great with air under it's wings and the successful test flight gives promise of better flights to come.

Looking really promising Monz! Far too early to say for sure, but it looked a bit happier going right?

My thoughts too, and it´s the ´right way to go¨.

Great flights!  Masterful work by a true artist.  I agree, go to the right.  The turn won't straighten out when the rubber runs down.  Torque and P-factor will also help to hold the nose up in the turn.

Chris, thanks so much for the video!!

Thanks all, so happy this thing has finally flown. Now I need to finish it!

It did look happier going right didn't it? Once I chuck more rubber in we'll see what it wants to do. These trim flights were on 8 strands of 3/16th just over prop to hook length. First flight was a few hand winds, second was 100, then 150 and final flight 240ish* (I lost count once the little KP started creaking!**). I think that power will be fine, just needs a longer motor for more winds.

Pete, I do have und piloten, he will go in, at some point...  Grin

* no cockpit instruments were hurt during the filming of these flights

** no blast tube was used, either!
