The new propeller on the Radian makes it hit 200 meters altitude in 25 seconds (down from over 30 seconds on the old prop.) A hit. And the weather was fantastic - just a slight wind and thermals everywhere. In one thermal I ended up so high it took me 5 minutes of flat spinning to get back down to where I was comfortable. Each 25 second burst of power easily gave me 10-15 minutes of flying.
The SmoothE flew great, as it always has every time except the time I rekitted the previous fuselage.
The Oogly flew. It's a handful. It needs some down thrust on the motor (under power it would pitch up hard and start hanging on the prop) and I think the center of gravity is too far forward.
However, I didn't crash any of the planes, even the Oogly. Any day you come back with the same number of planes in the same number of pieces that you left with is a good day.
