If I don't crash my Shoestring by then, I am willing to try a race. June 3rd is fine for me.

I  finally had my maiden flight on my scratch built  lil' Toni. Tonis (and ef1s in general) tend to have a bad tendency to jump to the left on take off, causing for a side ways flying airplane usually resulting in a tip stall, then the inevitable  ???  As Ken mentioned earlier, the newer ef1s are being built with right thrust built into the firewall. On this Toni, i added a 1/16th washer under the 2 left side motor standoffs, giving the motor right thrust. plane will take off a lot straighter with minimal rudder input. Also, a good push from your helper (caller) at full throttle, gets the airplane on a good track right away.

Cheers Fellas!!
go fast, turn left.

Well sorry guys but I am officially no longer in the EF1 owners club.
This evening I was practicing with my shoestring, on my 4th battery during a high speed turn, the plane got squirrelly and I couldn't recover.
I will be sticking to my FPV wing racing instead, where 120mph into the ground is still repairable!!
Have fun on Saturday!!

Well that sucks! EF1s do not like hard turns, high speed stall with probably no room to recover. I fly high rates and lots of expo for landing, and low rates approx 1/8 delflection for racing.... that’s too bad. Maybe you can come out and check it out anyways?!
I’ll let the TEMAC boys work on ya!
Rest in pieces shoestring! Miller time!
