From certain angles, you can see almost the whole island in one go from about 1200' up.   I must say how unsafe I felt flying over water.   Really concerned about all the moving parts keeping going. 

I felt a bit like that flying over the Grand Canyon back in 2001.

That looks simple enough, do the servos operate the steering or the trim tabs?

I had my first ten flights without ever knowing what landing felt like  {-)
Even got dropped in a tide pool after dark near Altcar  %%

You should try flying to the Falklands! Especially on the return trip knowing the aircraft you’ve just serviced the night before- which is awful because you know what’s wrong with it! :o

I'd love to see the Island from a chopper.

Too much grunt on a Springer turns
it into a diving boat.
Take it easy on the throttle stick.

Yes, I'll be fitting the batteries as far back as I can to try and help keep the bow up.  I might have to use "dual rates" on the throttle to avoid mishaps.
If it proves to be too much, I'll fit something a bit smaller, and save the Turnigy for my lobster boat build.

Had a nice trip to the Isle of Wight today - flew out of Denham and landed in The Fighting Cocks pub garden near the zoo.   Had a great lunch and then flew around the island, out over the Needles and then back to Portmouth and on to Denham.   It's been a beautiful day and got a bit sunburnt from sitting in the pub garden.  :}
