Yippee!
First E- flight and Park Flyer Flight!!!

I purchased a Hacker Jodel a few weeks ago at a swap meet. It had HS-80 servos, jeti 040, and a DD 280 installed. I Took it home and thought now what- i've never messed with this stuff before.

I found E-Zone and the forums. I have to say a BIG Thank You!! I have read tons of threads for info and advise over the last week or so. I had my two teenage daughters go to witness the flight as they had show a lot of interest in the jodel. I did a range check and then did a hand launch. WOW!! It flew great !!! No noise, no mess, just a grown man giggling like a kid! It didn't have much duration as it is DD and The battery pack is probably been used past its prime. To say it was a joy is an understatment. I am totally Hooked!!!

I had a big bonus on top of the new plane and this flight today. My two daughters were both asking to start lessons. They said this looked a lot more fun than the loud IC planes I fly. I guess a lot of my IC stuff just went up for sale!
