Introducing the Wicked Witch 2!

Borrowing from what I have learned from test flying the Wicked Witch, I have order the RC aircraft above. This will become the Wicked Witch 2. It is based off the Predator spy plane and has some advantages/disadvantages over the Wicked Witch 1.

Advantages:
1) It is electric powered making it quicker to launch and no messy fuel to gum up the video lens.
2) It is a pusher-prop design leaving the forward area free of prop interference.
3) It can possibly be hand launched in a stiff wind (not a problem near thunderstorm inflow).

Disadvatages:
1) It has a lower payload carrying capability meaning that I will have to lighten it up such as removing the landing gear and going with landing skids.

This model can be purchased here:
