Default Homemade Ryan NYP "Spirit of St. Louis"

Hello !

Ryan NYP "Spirit of St. Louis" is the world's first airplane to do a non stop trans-Atlantic flight.
Since this airplane has so much historical significance and because I love aviation I've built an RC model of Spirit of St. Louis.

I want to thank Quorneng for showing me the pull-pull control cables for control surfaces in another post. It worked for me in my Spirit of St. Louis Airplane.

And my plane flies, okay-ish.
Here's the maiden flight video -

Here are the specifications :-
wingspan --- 1330 mm
flying weight --- 660 gram
motor ---- brushless outrunner 1000 kv A 2212
battery --- 11.1 v 1000 mah

I covered the foamy with thin paper, it's called "butter-paper" here. And the wings has only one strip of balsa sheet for reinforcement.
