I did a quick maiden on the 35mm speed jet. It flew great, even in the 15mph wind.
It needs no reflex for level flight! I had it set up with some reflex to start, and I actually ran out of down trim trying to get it dialed in. I may need to shift the CG forward a little bit so that it doesn`t need down trim.
I know I promised to cut some balsa on the 70mm this weekend, but test flying the Mini Me will have to do. I need to make it to the hobby shop to pick up some balsa and ca kicker.
I`m also going to draw up some basic plans before I get started. But it won`t be long.
