No Greg

Just popped it together to take a photo. 

Got to install the IDS and servos yet.

Hopefully it will be in the air after Christmas.

 Had a great day with the first flight of my Quantum. 

Really impressed how good it was straight away. 

Did a few fine tweaks on the elevator and snap flap and got it fly on rail.

Very fast and smooth in the turns.

Looking forward getting out in a good blow and getting its belly full of ballast. 

Might even use it at next weekend's comp

It looked really good Les. I cant wait to see it flying in a comp soon. 

Hopefully both of ours will be flying in comps before the end of the winter league.

Got to maiden my Quantum yesterday. Bit if advice, even after 4 hrs of programming, checking everything 20 times then checking again on the slope, it's still possible to have the ailerons reversed...:blush:

Well, no damage and I manage to reprogram my radio on the slope for a quick maiden. After the first crash I wasn't feeling confident so I just did a short flight then landed.

Still need to fix a few programming issues before doing some F3F practice.

Glad you got away with that one Brett.

I did it with the rudder on a big slow scale jobbie, took a while to work out why the turns were so 'orrible.

The other good one is copying a model memory and only reversing the ailerons in one flight phase thinking it was a universal change. Got away with it because I didn't change flight phase on the first flight but pre flight checks before the second flight caused a degree of consternation!

Its amazing how easily it can be missed. I honestly did about 4 hrs of programming and checked it I don't know how many times, even just before the flight. Now I just need to get the confidence back up for flying it.

If it wasn't for the fact we had so much rain and the ground was wet and boggy I wouldn't have got away with it. 

Les seems to have his flying very well so there is no doubting its a good model to have in the line-up. I just need to now get some proper stick time with mine to get it dialled in to the point where I can start racing it.

Quantum number 2 on order.

I'm that impressed with how the Quantum has performed over the last two outings iv decided to order another one in a heavier lay up.

Going for a similar colour and design to the photo.

Going to see if they will do and double carbon c80 plus c160 with carbon Dbox.
