  • Yeah it just fits, I guess I lucked out. I really love that return to home feature you have for yours. I can easily see how I might need that myself with this bird one day, lol.

    • Check out the Bigaole RTH device. It's from RC Castle, maybe even a seller in the US carries it. It's been a life saver for all of my sailplanes at least once.

        • As you get older it is easier to lose track of a glider. They can climb so fast and disappear into the sun very quickly. I also have a couple of BigAoles' and they have saved my gliders on more than one occasion. Even if you can't see it, flick the switch and it will soon be back in sight again and usually from a direction you did not expect. LOL

          • I decided to get my BoT recovered. The stock covering was okay I guess but I wanted to show off the ribbing detail on that beautiful wing. A buddy hooked me up with a maestro recover guy. I picked it up today and was floored. He did a truly amazing job! I couldn't be any happier with how it turned out.

              She's a beaut! We had a blizzard here today, so sailplane season will have to wait a couple more weeks.

              • Thanks! Yep very pleased. I was teased with sunny skies for a couple hours while I was still working, and hoped to go fly her after work but that's when the next storm system moved in.

                • Put my new RunCam2 4K on the wing tip today. Was a little hairy as the opposing weight on the other wing tip wasn't pulling it's weight as it were. So I spent the entire flight with my right stick pushed over to compensate. Safe landing is all that mattered. I do love the view!

                  • Bird looks great! They have such graceful lines.

                    • Thanks! I really love the new covering on her...Love that wingtip angle too but need to put more ballast on the opposite wing next time.

                      • Can't beat a BoT 😎
                        Place the CG at the rear of the wing spar and trimming for a flat glide then really watch her perform!
                        Every bit the F3b thoroughbred she was designed to be!
