Dick Baxter's XE-5 Biplane

My XE-5 weighs 15 grams and flies like a champ. 90 sec. at least outdoors, hard to say exactly what the still air duration is because this thing can ride the tiniest whiff of a thermal. Many flights of 2 and 3 minutes to date. Climb is brisk on 1/8 rubber and with 3/16" it climbs like a bat out of hell!!
