|He's at it again! In early 2016, Joe sent the following:
"Attached are first pictures of my newest delta. It is electric, powered with a Hacker motor on 8 cells. Will probably have its first flight next weekend if the Miami weather improves."
|A few months later, Joe sent a flight report:
"The inaugural flight ended with a sever pancake on the side of the runway. Some damage but easily repaired. After confirming that I had miscalculated the CG location and that this made the delta nearly unstable, I added nearly one pound on the nose and now it flies the way it was meant to be. Eventually, I will relocate the batteries to recover the added weight. Next weekend I will fly again to see how well it can do it."
