Bonjour @GuyOReilly ,

C'est très joli.  J'aime beaucoup les avions nostalgiques, et rouge et vert vont bien ensemble.

Andy

@Andy Hoffer , thank you, I always liked that model.  And the pictures are not bad either, IMHO...  BTW, it is ORANGE et VERT.

Ready for maiden flight!
2 pounds 2 ounces RFT.
I had to use heavier wheels due to CG concerns...

Here is a video of the hand launch and recovery by @Frank v B .
Thank you for your assistance.
This Buzzard found a thermal on the 3rd flight!

Congratulations @GuyOReilly !  Sorry I couldn't get there earlier this evening to photograph votre belle avion.   You had left when I arrived at 6:15 p.m. We will reconvene at another time and do some proper in-flight and static portraits.

Bravo! 

Andy

@Andy Hoffer sorry I missed you, I had dinner to prepare and lawn to cut, the Honey-Do-List must be completed...  There will be other times.  Once trimmed by @Frank v B it caught a thermal and stayed up just like a glider.  I am soooooo HAPPY!!!!

Guy,

Maybe the maiden was successful because Andy could not make it.  ;) ;)
He has this effect on people.

I didn't say this, did I??

Frank

ps: good call on changing the 3S to 2S.  Still more than enough power but sure easier to handle.
