OK I got a few days in with the 801
day 1 with a high start and 10 to 15mph winds
not a great day to get it all set up but did find it had a bit to much nose weight. took some out and flew about 7 more launches.
Today was contest Day we get one pre flight to test then contest starts
1 test in a nice claim day I had to reset some of the trims as not a windy as 1st day. Plane floats a lot more then my old Supra and will move around the sky a faster too.
our contest does 4 rounds with a 5--9--12--14 in order
1st round I do a 5:03 with a 96 landing Need to work on approach and a bit fine turning on flaps
2nd round I add a bit more down comp to flap setting and hit a 8:59 with a 86 landing. I finding that this plane will track very well on approach I just put in down a bit soon also need to add more down for the landing hit ( will mix a Landing profile when I get home)
3rd round air was a bit tough and had to work the whole time. I was at 100feet at 5 min mark and moved from the bad air and was looking at landing points till a hit a small bump and worked that for my 12 I don't think I got over 100 feet for 6 min I still went over time 12:03 with a 86 again for landing
4th round found some air and worked it for 5 min before it went away and most every one was dropping out at that point only 3 of left in the air at this time. found a Maxa doing some low turns and moved over to see if I can get some help and I was able to work it again 120 in the air for the rest of the flight.
I took 1st in sportsman and 2nd over all in the contest
I can't wait to get more time on this plane and make my times spot on with landings

Nice job on the first flights. Just seeing some activity on this thread-great airplane! I set both of my elevator neutrals according to the instructions and they needed almost no clicks of trim for first flights.
Question-is the new center section (802?) a drop-in for the old (801)? Fuse/wing joint and tip joints?
