Sebart Shark 30e
« on: April 02, 2009, 09:04:20 AM »
A bit of boring stuff with a plane  :P  :P

Last sunday (29th March) we went to the MCFC field for the maiden flight of my Shark from Sebart.

This is what they call a "total trainer"... That fly like a trainer, but with enough power (and a good pilot!) you can pretty much do all the 3D stuff (check the Sebart video on youtube...)

The plan is to use this plane as a tow plane for smallish gliders.

The beast :





Fair wind that day, but the plane managed without big issues.
Next step, is to increase the power ! But happy overall with this machine, stable platform!

And the first flight (thanks Keith for filming!  :clap: )

Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

Happy Days

I'm a little confused Fred. :?  

I distinctly remember filming the Shark crashing on one of her landings, so why didn't I see that clip in the above footage? :?:
Try not to run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas....... all at the same time.

Ahhhh that was not a crash !  :P
Wind picking up the wing!

You can see it at the end of the movie, but I think I put the scene transition too soon  :?:

How convenient  :D  :D  :D  :wink: . Looks good Fred. Going to have to build a small scale glider now so I can get towed up behind it.
