Pics of the 119 maiden are here!
This plane was made to fly and fly it did. The maiden went about 12:30pm Vegas time.
Takeoff roll was uneventful and she rotated and climbed out, no problem. Plenty of power with the 16x10 two bladed props on 6s-5000s.
Corsair Nut put her through her paces which consisted of pretty normal maneuvers. She only required ONE click of left trim and was trimmed out! Even at 29 lbs, she cruised at half throttle or less and had a whole lot left in the tank if needed. Camera passes were beautiful.
Landing gear worked flawlessly and the landing was picture perfect.
My friend has some 5s batteries that we could try with the four bladed props but I don't feel like changing anything this trip and will work on that at home.
Pictures were taken by Woody D with my friend Hans-Joachim's camera while Hans was filming video. Woody did a great job.
Another flight planned for tomorrow and we will get yet more pics and video.
We are planning another flight tomorrow and will have video soon.
