Little advice for your first flight that helps a lot.

-Make sure the plane flies nice and level LOS before looking into goggles or monitor.

-Have a spotter with you that is watching the plane.

-Get to a good altitude before throwing goggles on or looking into monitor. This will allow you extra time to correct something if there is a problem.

-Don't fly on a windy day. (It will be tempting, but don't do it).

Last but not least, have fun and welcome to a whole new part of your life!

Thanks guys all good info go on.

On another note. I'm finding that I like the cg on this plane a little forward of the manufactures suggestions.
