Here is a quick video of one of many short flights today. It was very windy and I didn't want it to crash so I kept the flights short.
Using an aluminum frame, with 16in motor to motor distance and 8in 3blade props
Motors: bp 2217-9
ESC: Turnigy Plush 18A
Battery: Turnigy 3s 1800
Wii sensors

yea, its very stable even in the wind.
I was actually standing just a few feet in front of where it landed so i really had to cut that flight short or it would have come for my head.
Looks like its not as windy today so I may go try again this afternoon when it gets a little warmer.

I know its been said, but it needs to be said many times, this things can do serious damage, and are not toys. theres lots of people with injuries from rc airplanes. and this thing is not an exception, please be carefull so You can continue to enjoy it.
