DH 100 Vampire – Maiden Flight Video

The de Havilland DH.100 Vampire, made by Durafly (Hobbyking) in PNF configuration. Featuring a 70mm EDF (electric ducted fan), electric retracts, EPO construction, a custom red paint job and powered by a 2650 mah 4-cell LiPo battery. This is the maiden flight of my second vampire. This airplane flies great: excellent slow-speed characteristics due to its light weight and huge wing surfaces. Stay tuned for a photo gallery.
