StevensAero Shaft 400.  Ever since I re-covered this thing I've had a hard time getting it balanced back in.  Here's a flight still tweaking, and getting it tuned in to my new radio...

I like The Girl From Ipanema song at the start of this video, but I much prefer the version by Astrud Gilberto & Stan Getz ◊ The Girl From Ipanema ◊ 1964.

I've been still going through my "hangar" of airplanes and getting them tweaked in to my new radio.  Here's a flight I did Tuesday with my Multiplex ParkMaster Pro.
I think I only have 2 airplanes now that I haven't got set up with my new radio.

I got "attacked" by a bird!  I'm pretty sure it was a killdeer as it made a lot of noise and fluttered down right in front of me doing a "I'm hurt" routine.  So no doubt it has a nest out in the field somewhere and was trying to distract me from it.   As you can see, it got quite upset with me and my plane!

Kinda came down hard the last time and broke my landing gear.  And it had a carbon fiber strip, too!  I repaired it by drilling a hole in the fuselage and landing gear strut so I could glue a carbon fiber rod where the break was.  Then I wrapped the whole thing with some carbon fiber thread strip and epoxied over that - like fiberglassing.  But before that landing, it was a fun flight.  This plane flies sooo predictably and does exactly what you ask from it.  Wish I could fly it better - but, even after practicing for 10 years now, I'm still learning.
