I always love it when FliteTest comes out with new planes. I wait by the computer, checking every Monday and Wednesday, over and over, to see if the videos are up yet. I'm probably not the only one.
When the Simple Storch came out, I was on a mission to be the first to have it built. I spent 5 hours that evening, and maidened it the next day.
What a great plane this is. It can be used for so many purposes. It is fast, it glides like no other, and It has tons of power, so it can carry stuff. Not to mention, it is huge. But, since the wings detatch, I can fit it in my car.
I was a little worried about the landing gear, because it looked kinda funky, but it is the strongest gear they have made, so far.
Power setup used:
Motor: 2217-07 suppo
ESC: Hobby King Birdie 30A
Battery: 2200mah 3 cell
Here is a video I put together of the maiden flight, and a few after.
And here are some pics of my build.
