Maiden and raced

At last flew the Avalon after 4 months on the bench. Maidened, then flew her in the practice race feeling rather impressed with the way she flys, more to come!!

Still need to experiment with setup and i need get a full ballast system sorted.

From the first flights i have found she grooves nicely in the EM style and the energy retention and speed is very good, accelerating sharply.
She has good manners with easy handling with the long fuselage and shallow angle Vtail.
I need to check my current CG, i set it at 100mm for the maiden but during racing i added a bit as the wing ballast tend to move CG back a little, so need to check where im at.

So modest. 2nd place in the race final standings, first time out - that's where he's at.

Nothing to do with his thumbs though - it was all Avalon. ......

Avalon DP

I have also one Avalon DP in my hangar.
The building quality is really good.
I decided to build in RDS on all wing rudder.
As I made good experiences with 3D printed servoframes for the MKS 6125,
I created in 3D CAD servoframes for the Futaba 3150 and let them print out by shapeways.com.
http://www.shapeways.com/shops/rdscomponents
Up to today they work fine.
For the flaps I used frames which alows axial movement.
The avalon has a F3F layup and the weight is empty 2.6 kg.
Full ballasted it is 4.9 kg.
I flew it with 3.8 kg at the Spring Cup in Poland this year.
It performed very well having in mind that this was the 3. flight I was doing with it.
The avalon carrys the ballast very neutral and has no bad habitts.
The overall performance is very promissing...
CG is at the moment at 100-102 mm. In future I want to spent some time moving the CG around to find the best setup for me.
