I just maidedned mine on sunday!

conditions were VERY windy at 20-25mph but i couldnt resist so up we went, camera rolling

i was anticipating at least a somewhat sketchy maiden especially given all of the wind... but no. it was a non-event... the bipe required no - repeat - NO TRIM!!!

i played with the wind, even flew backwards; it handled it wonderfully for such a small model, something i would have thought the opposite of especially given the extremely light wingloading...

i flew it again monday night on a lit parking lot on campus and again it went beautifully; the colors even showed up well in the moonlight and the dim parking lights.

i have not flown it in non-windy conditions yet but im looking forward to it.

this has officially become my keep in the car plane (at least for the winter when my car isnt a solar powered oven)and i keep it charged just in case i get a second to fly somewhere between classes, work, meetings, lunch, etc...

we will get the video posted soon!
