I grew tired of waiting for the rain to stop and said to hell with it, time for another recon mission!

My first hand toss (my friend tossed it for me on the maiden) was a bit hairy...I launched it with less AOA than I thought and just about smashed it into the ground...Yikes! Once I established climb we were off to the races. I fly on a hill surrounded by evergreen trees and the echo she makes is almost as cool as the speed!

For landing I really had to fight the urge to flare as any up stick at low throttle and she wants to go vertical. I had to go around and try again and finally just flew her down to the ground.

I need more batteries.
