Another Vampire

Postby Barrie King » May 23rd, 2013, 9:22 am

I have just completed a Vampire build, not as big as the others, it is a DB Sport and Scale one.
It came out at 9lb 5oz dry, with 350g of lead in the nose to get the correct balance. It is fitted with a Wren 44 Turbine, Hitec servos and E Flight retracts. The decals were from Hawk Graphics. Now just waiting for the weather for the test flight.

Managed to do a test flight yesterday evening, which went really well, just a couple of clicks on aileron and elevator. Only needed half power for normal flight and the flaps for landing, would recommend this kit to anyone with a MW44 who fancies a warbird.
