Forgot to post this up, but "The Dreamsicle" had it's first flight on a J250W to around 4,200 feet.

Pretty smooth...but not smooth enough.
Been working so much I had to take advantage of holiday time to get some stuff done!
Mark me received! Package showed up today!

Again, if you haven't subscribed I would...

It's actually an old school performance Mad Dog made from cloth G10 tube and a gelcoat/cloth nosecone!
The M1780 and M1297 both sim out to right...
