Testing the Rafale for taxing and ground handling characteristics.

Ready for takeoff

All ready for her first flight. Final flying weight 4 lbs 1 oz ... not too bad at all.

I upgraded my JR10X radio today to the Spectrum 2.4Ghz transmitter module and 9 channel receiver ... it was a whole lot cheaper (about $1200 cheaper) than getting the new JR12X radio. Now I just need to order a few more receivers for my other planes.

R/C Rafale First Motor Run - Video

First run of the motors after installing the fans in the Rafale. These are some older brushless motors running on 3 cell LiPo batteries so the thrust is not amazing but I'm sure it will be fine for this model.
