Easy to build and easy to fly. With this Comet Jupiter model, i started with 6 strands of 1/16 rubber and a 6 inch plastic Peck and Palmer prop. I needed a 1/16th of down thrust, and a little right hand turn. Never went past 500 turns in early tests. Got close to the trees down wind with a flight around 30 seconds.

Hi Don - you did get out flying!  Looks like a nice spot to fly in - is it a park?

That was at Sunset Hill farm in Valparaiso, IN . It was an old farm the county turned into a park. There is a good amount of room , but if you go for the max i think its a little small.  Wink
