No, not any more. I’ve now got over the nervousness of launching like this.

That smell, you’re getting, is from the cows in the next field !
Now THAT'S a thermal.

TX on MODE FIVE LoRes.jpg

You see, you need to select your transmitter to work in ‘Mode 2’.

What you’ve got, is some of the weird stuff you get if you accidentally select ‘Mode 5’.

X29 LoPass String Removed LoRes.JPG

As the X29 screams by the biscuit tin in a very low pass,
just note the size of its under-wing missile launch tubes.
Awesome !

Some were quick to point out to me that this was not, in fact, a scale representation of the Wright’s Flyer and
the Wright Brother’s early launch system.

And I thank you for your keen eye for detail and for that correction.

Of course, what I should have said was:

‘a stand-off scale representation.’

Makes quite a difference – especially if you’re stood-off a good mile or two.

No need to chop the tree down, guys - It's here, in the bottom of this hedge!
