Little nervous at first but ended the flight with a great landing and feeling confident. I found the RP relaxing to fly and graceful to watch. Looking forward to many more flights. A great addition to the hangar which includes everything from a V1 Sbach um (waiting for the AS3X V2) to the SlowStick.

Replaced the AR800 with a AR600. The 6 chnl takes up much less space. Did a range check at over 90 paces.

I fly most of my models at half-throttle most of the time and have never had a ESC failure...not even in 90 degree plus weather.
That's all fine until you don't have much airflow over the ESC, like in a slow climbing Radian Pro, for example.
