  1. Maiden flight went awesome other than I have to practice my landings. It deserves some color now. :)

     
  2. It now has some color,

    ...cheating is having someone else do it for you.

    I've always struggled holding my orientation on an all white plane. I need a marker on there of some type to cling to. How did it feel to you in the air ?

    It looks good actually. I like it.
     
  6. It felt good, I did have a slight roll right and I tried trimming the ailerons and didn't seem to change much but there was a fair breeze out. I think next time out I'll zero the trims and maybe see what the rudder trim does, hopefully no wind. Have to get use to using the rudder, well rudders and ailerons at the same time, train that brain. :D In the beginning that was just banking and yanking. ;)

    I created a be lazy and fly mix. I added about 20% rudder into the aileron channel. Then set it to a switch to enable.

    A yank and bank turn feels a little more graceful and i can lay off the throttle a little bit not having to pull-up on it so hard in the turn....something I wanted to suggest anyway ?

    It also helps a bunch to keep that inside wing tip from dipping down and stalling.

  14. Second flight with this little guy, fairly windy day so I really haven't been able to trim it much. After to attempts to launch from ground and the wind flipping it over I hand launched it. Bad landing in the end broke my prop and I didn't have another with me.

    It also rides nice in the back seat.

    So, based on pics, I am assuming the wings are not removable? if thats the case, then VERY sadly, I have to pass on this one. it will never fit in my car and therefore never get flown. :(
