Congratulations on a great maiden, queadlunnrau! Sorry to hear follow-on flights aren't as nice. Mine has always flown consistently. It goes exactly where I tell it to (which is not necessarily always a good thing), and tracks like an arrow. I should probably check my CG again - The ballast I had on the firewall came loose a while ago, so I took it off. It wasn't that much weight, and the flight characteristics didn't seem to change much. Maybe your battery is shifting in flight?

Nice landing. I think grass would really help. My flying site requires landing on pavement, which is one reason the roll-outs are so long, and why it tends to bounce and porpoise if I'm not careful.
