A week ago I headed up to the top of Meio with the Streamline 350 and a Bird of Time. The weather was cloudy and grey with a light breeze which I estimated to be 10 - 15 mph, ideal conditions to try flying the Streamline from the slope for the 1st time. And that was why I bought it, to fly from the slope when the wind was marginal and up to about 15 mph when a conventional slope model would be more comfortable flying.
Fortunately all went well on the 1st flight with flying buddy Clive doing the honours giving it a chuck off the slope. The streamline flew away nicely and didn't need any assistance from the motor at all. I had a 2nd flight where I launched it myself also and once again all was well. I will make another video after I've flown it more to give a more comprehensive review of this model.
I also took along a Dynaflite Bird of Time ARF which I'd bought a couple of years ago 2nd hand and had been mostly completed but never flown. Clive said that it wasn't too windy to fly it and so that's what I did. Clive told me to allow a good distance for my landing approach as this model has a tendancy to float on, but that wasn't the case in this instance and it landed way further back than I expected.
This video is quite long at about 22 minutes so grab yourself a cuppa tea and a biscuit and enjoy. Please leave any comments on the video and subscribe to my channel.
