My instructor gave mine a quick maiden flight on Thursday. With my having only a little over four hours, we thought it best if he did it, since we didn't have a Spektrum buddy cable.

There was a very thick and solid overcast which made it very difficult to keep track of when straight on either coming or going. It just disappeared to both of us, so it was a pretty short flight.

It flew right from a level launch at a bit over half throttle, climbed at about 45 degrees with more throttle, did a competent loop, a very sloppy roll and (in true Calypso tradition) overshot most of the runway on landing.

His comments were that it "...flies well, didn't seem to have much rudder authority, and only needed a few clicks of up trim."

I now have a buddy cable ready.
