Maidened the OSG this Evening...Noticed at WOT shes wanted too go Left as shes climbed.I found her soft and docile on the rudder which is good ...Uploading a Video now.used my Hat camera,need some adjusting,first time using it,and Stupid me never noticed the Infinity setting was off,so alot of the vid was Blurry/non focused...I edited most/what i could out..
Cant wait too try her in some winds where she'll just soar in one spot
I know shes a One sheet glider but i may add a 1'' strip too the rudder too see if i get more response...
Me and Prime8 headed too my clubs field for the Maiden flight of the EuroFighter.
On the second pass of the Sun...Im not sure what really happened,it happened
so fast...Next thing i know im inverted and was not enough Space between the plane and the ground to pull out of.If the the trees were not there i may had enough.But if i never it was of been a Complete rebuild.I i think the trees saved her Plane is repaired and ready for some touch up paint
This bird is my first Scratch-build and i have to say i am very pleased of the ease
it was too Build.
Using only Elmer's foam board and a mix between 5min epoxy and FS CA glue ,it went together very good.
I found the hardest/frustrating part of the build was soaking/peeling the darn paper off the foam board.
