Maiden flights

Maiden flights were great, even though it was in a rainstorm. The tomahawk was really graceful on the G-12, and the Jayhawk boosted nice and straight on a G-40 but I detected just a hint of flutter right at burnout, probably due to the long pushrods I used to keep the servo weight up forward. I think a G-38 will be perfect. Glide trim was spot on and they were really easy to fly. Of course the jump starting battery I brought has a safety circuit in it, so it wouldn't light the igniters and we had to pull the battery out of my van to launch Enjoy!
