We finally got some warm weather today. Unfortunately it was way too windy to fly. There has not been one good flying day since I maidened the Extra and it is now April 23rd. What's worse is that the forecast is calling for 7-10 days of rain. Grrrrrr.... I don't remember a colder wetter April. I guess I don't mind that I am still waiting on my Habu32 since I won't be flying anytime soon. I guess I'll try again in May?!?!
Successful Maiden today! She flys like a dream. I wasn't sure it would happen due to weather and other setbacks. When I was trying to push on the Dubro large control arms, I actually pushed the elevator servo and the plywood mount inside the fuse. I guess I should be happy I found out while it was here on the ground..that could have been a disaster. That's kind of ridiculous to have a dry glue joint way inside the model where you can't check it. Oh well, I was very pleased with my 2 flights. I have never had a plane that flew with literally just a click or two of trim. Can't wait for better weather!
