    Finally got the chance to get the Jeti card programmed for the Bounty Hunter. Many thanks to all who gave me advice on this forum. [And at the sod farm, Scott.] I was amazed to see that it worked. [!!!!!!] I had to switcheroo a couple of motor leads to get the prop going the correct way, but it pulls mighty hard. Once I had the prop going the correct way, it tried to pull the plane out of my hands. I have only got a 7×5 slo flier prop for this thing at present. Does that sound about right? It pulls like hell, and I don’t know where this plane will go, but it is gonna get there fast. WooHoo!!!!
    Thanks again guys!
    Now to become a lot more experienced in working the Smoothie. I am presently going to put a servo on this for a quick DT, but may have to fly this rascal without it. It can’t be any worse than my Mini Pearl with a TD. [My Mini Pearl weighs 5.25 oz.] I have the Smoothie set for a 4 second engine run.
    Before I commit this thing to flight, does anyone have any advice? Anyone got any Lucky Charms? [ As a card-carrying Ohio boy, I already have my Lucky Buckeye.] I will be sure to post some pictures as soon as I can get some taken.


    If its the same motor as I have , I think the 7×5 will do fine.
    I wouldn’t make the first launch at 4 secs. Hold it for 1-1 1/2 secs. Point it up about 85 degrees.
    The Bounty Hunter MUST, repeat , MUST balance as drawn, Add weight as needed. If its nose heavy, it will loop. Quickly.
    Launch a bit left of the windsock. It goes left.
    Have fun with it and avoid landing in water.
