Default E-flite Cessna 150 Z

As we are in cooler weather 'Downunder' it was time to get some flights in before I take the Draco beach flying .
The Draco was a similar flight experience in itís maiden today, similar to the Cessna which loves the wind being such a large wing span.

Welcome to WattFlyer, Bellair. Glad to have you here.
Thanks for posting the video. You are braver than I, flying out over the ocean.
The other thing that struck me was you must have to deal with rust, flying off a beach. I noticed the nose wheel wire in the Draco was rusted, which probably caused the tire to come off the wheel, since it could not roll properly.
Thanks again.

Default Many thanks for your reply

Hi mate,

Thank you for taking the time to watch.
After flying at the beach, i tend to wash the plane underside with fresh water, dry & spray with silicone.

i do get some rust build up if i don't do this ( F15 jet was one)

the Draco had no rust as it was itís first flight yesterday. But will check & spray each time. I did spray it beforehand with the silicone.

sure flies well after the initial nerves & floats like the Cessna with the big wing span.

regards

noel
