Maidened my F9F Panther EDF today and it went alright. Crashed at first because it had way too much uptrim on the elevator, had to reglue the tail. Compensated manually and it still needed 6 clicks of downtrim on the controller to fly level. After that it flew very well indeed!

Elevator was reasonably touchy and ailerons were lightning, despite being on sedate control horn settings. I flew at 70% throws via the controller and this was more than enough for hard pullouts, sharp turns and super-quick rolls.

I'd rate this SkyAngel F9F Panther EDF as an 8 - good for a third plane. Its combination of touchy flight characteristics and EDF power system make it unsuitable for green pilots, although it is a lot of fun to fly for those with a bit more experience.
