Opterra 2M BNF Maiden flight

Post

So with all the frustration yesterday with the Opterra not wanting to fly she finally took to the air today! Video of launch to follow shortly. It did come at a small price though, on the third flight I broke my new 10" apc folding prop with my f'in index finger! O'well at least I finally got to see her fly. Once in the air she flies beautifully even at 1/3 throttle and glides forever with no power.

Congratulations, I hope your finger is OK. They can always replace parts on the model. :lol:

Onward and Upward.

Thanks guys, my finger will live. I'm more mad about breaking a brand new prop that had only 2 flights on it but what can you do. Have to keep Wayne in business! 😝

How'd you get enough airspeed up to get a successful launch? If you get a chance to upload the video, I'd like to see it.

Thermals---I need thermals!

I can't figure out why I can see it but no one else can. I will try it again on a computer instead of my phone.
