Finally maidened my Willow.
I am very satisfied how it flies. All that hard work was payed off.
Well I have to say I was surprised to see how slow the Willow can fly. In normal flying Willow flies slower than my Valenta Capucino ( it is the closest reference from my hangar). Even at landings the Willow is noticeably slower and easier to land then Capucino. Elevator mix at butterfly still needs some down trim.
I tried loops, inverted loops and rolls all done in a good manner. Willow is fast and agile in a turn when flying fast. I have to say that the wight of 2550 g doesn't seem to be an issue. Furthermore I will probably try to remove some lead and move the CG back a bit.
Even tried to do some tipstall without success. Willow just keeps on flying.
A friend of my made a comment that the Willow seems smaller in the air than my Capucino. Perhaps this is because of smaller wing tips.
Enough of talking, here are some photos from the maiden.
