Successful Maiden Flight!
Maiden flights are always interesting. This is my 6th new plane in the last 2 years that I have been flying and it didn't disappoint. Flying conditions were less than ideal because there is a storm front coming into our area this evening. Winds were a solid 10-15 mph and the sky was overcast. But, considering that this weekend is going to be wintry, it was this or nothing.
During takeoff, I was expecting the plane to take off faster than it did. It got a little squirrelly on me and I ended up ramping the street curb into the air! The about halfway through I tried to adjust my camera and almost lost control of the plane. Luckily, I saved it.
Overall, it is a nice flying plane. I didn't get too crazy just because of the windy conditions. Check out the video below and sorry in advance for the camera not being pointed very well. I should have had it pointed up more.
