I finally maidened my RP today. Very impressed!! No bad habits at all. I did almost lose it on the second flight though. I committed the number one sin ( or at least one of the top ten), I took my eyes off of the plane. I launched and cut the motor, then I heard a full sized multi engine turboprop somewhere behind me and although I'm sure well high enough, I wanted to confirm that. I turned around to look for the full sized, didn't see it and looked back at where the RP was. WAS being the thing. I had put chrome tape on the LE and rudder. I also put florecent orange trim tape on the bottom of the wing tips. All was useless!! After searching the skies, I found it at about two tree tops high (they were reaching for that plane) behind me. I had several more flights with one resulting in a nice thermal. I actually tried to bail from it by using the flaps. The thermal had other ideas. I ended up putting it into a gentle dive to exit.
Can't wait for my next experience.
