Good speed (more than I expected, est at 110mph +), cool sound although not as quiet as I expected.

The fan is smooth as silk (I did a lot of work gluing and balancing it, and it paid off).

It needed a few clicks of down, since I had for safety given it a bit of up-trim for the maiden.

Knife edge requires a bit of down elevator so I have to move the CG around a bit.

Even in 15mph winds it lands absolutely rock stable. I suspect it's all that washout in the wingtips.
Were those Celsius degrees? Seems awefully low if its Fairenheit.

So it didn't sound like a turbine then? Hopefully better sounding than the Habu32.
