Love the part about removing all metal.  Now I don't understand the on the back compass calibration.  But either way, it's a great looking bird (or Byrd).  I'm curious what the range of this bugger is?

It's the size of it that makes this so stable in the air.  12" blades are good size for taking control of the wind.  Bravo.

So do you have to calibrate the compass every time you fly it?
