The Druine Turbulent rebuild/redesign was a success. On only 1/2 winds (about 400 turns), this little sucker took off straight up and circled, ending up on my roof. 1st time for THAT experience. I think with full winds, I could easily get over a minute of flight out of it outdoors.

new graphics, and most important: NO PAINT on the tail!!! I've learned my lesson on that one...

Here it is, back together! By doing the hollow tail feathers, I was able to take out over 3 grams of clay out of the nose. Test flights soon!

This is the result of rudder failure at full speed shortly after launch. I learned that I was not winding my rubber motors properly, and now I'm getting better power and speed out of the plane. I think the rudder was damaged on the previous flight when it flew into a tree at a good clip. I checked it over but missed the crack in the rudder. Oh well. It gave me a chance to replace the solid tail feathers with lighter ones of my own design. Now I'll be able to take some nose weight out of it so it'll be going even FASTER when it crashed next time!!!

here is a picture of the tabs I've added to the Druine that transformed it. Once I did these tabs, it flies stable and circles well.

Nothing over 10 seconds, it's still flying too low. It doesn't seem to want to climb initially, so when it settles into a decent flight, it's not very high and soon meets the ground. It flies nicely, just doesn't seem to climb.

Another attempt at flight.

It's now balanced properly, I think. Took quite a bit of weight to do it. Weighs 12oz, ready to fly. Will hopefully try and fly tomorrow morning.
