This is not the one he is building currently. We went to the FAC meet this weekend in Seguin Texas and had a BLAST! I got a ton of footage for the next video in our series and some sun to boot...

This flight is unedited and complete. Check out the climb on this baby! Shocked

FWIW, the Wock is D/T'ed for the last 30 seconds or so..I don't pop the stab very much and get a softer D/T.

Good to see the vid. Thanks for sharing.

How many turns 'Guru'? Looked only about a 30sec. prop. run?  1/2 turns perhaps?
It looks good though.

Gossie:
14 strands of 1/8" supersport, 600 turns..My chart shows it will take over 900.. The wind was blowing a gale, I D/T'ed to keep it on the field..

Yeah, I could see it DTd early----good thinking if it's blowing.
I just wondered on the prop. run and approx. turns you had on it. Should do a minute on a full wind up I guess.
