I didn't bother setting up the wing, as I'm thinking about installing an AR6710 rx so I can use the 10CHP's four-servo/four-channel wing configuration. I'm just using a basic 5-channel setup in the interim.
What a relaxing plane! So stable & easy to fly - yet surprisingly agile when called upon. I even let her fly hands-off for a minute-plus into a bit of a headwind @ zero ground-speed. I think I'm going to add some reflective tape to the wing for those half-mile AGL flights. I lost sight of the plane on a couple occasions.
I shot a few gigs of on-board video. I'll post a clip once I finish editing.
And have you gotten your UM Spit yet? Seems to be the week for them and the reports (if you wade through the busy topic) are that she will do your nice big loops. Still waiting for both of these planes to arrive
