Maiden flight, a success...kind of!
So the weather was perfect, and thought i'd go to the local field for a maiden flight. I had a couple of issues, one being the slow start on the motor. I thought i'd try a short hop, but the plane just lifted into the air, forcing me to do a slightly laonger flight than planned,
I'm not sure what was wrong, I think there was too much 'up' trim on the elevators, as the CG was at 33%. It was a bit difficult to control, but managed to land it, the landing was a bit heavy. And has highlighted the wek points i nthe rear of the fuselage, it is a clean break, so i will epoxy back together, add a bit more weight in the nose, and try again next weekend.
Overall i'm please with the progress.
