Strange blue bent winged bird over ASRCM tonight

There were repeated flashes of bright blue over ASRCM tonight. Powered by six cells, Shawn Maloney's new Corsair took to the air and flew with a distinctive flourish. A very nice airplane which appears to have no bad habits.

You did a super job of putting her together Bill.

Wow..!!!!!!!!
Thanks Al, for both the "compliment", and the pictures..! That last shot will be used as a screensaver on my PC for sure.
I'll throw you a challenge now....I'd love to see a video sometime..!

So glad it worked out well; Shawn had perfect weather for what looked like a perfect maiden flight.

Just a note regarding running that Scorpion motor on a 6S pack. The Kv is around 700, so watch that the amps don't get too high. I had a similar system shut down last summer when I mistakenly ran a 6S instead of a 5S. She must really haul with a 6S.

Thanks again Al ...excellent photos..!

I'll pass the motor warning along Bill, but you cannot tell these fighter jocks anything! lol
