Sharkface

I built this little 22″ thing while in between models. It is a bit lively to fly, certainly on the 3s setup I had to hand, probably much more suited to a 2s setup. Needed about 1/4-1/3 throttle to fly, with about 1/2 to happily fly out of your hand. Anything approaching full throttle produced so much torque it would roll uncontrollably!

Bit of lively retro fun though. A clubmate has a single channel one, which is scares the hell out of me!

I have just recently sold the Sharkface on eBay, I flew it maybe 10-15 times, but it was never quite the right thing for me. I built it entirely from scrap so it didn’t owe me anything and was taking up space so it had to go to make way for something else.
